Press Start 2013 – Gaming Industry Seminar


LUT Entrepreneurship Society (LUTES) is organizing a gaming industry seminar Press Start on Tuesday 29.10 at 14:00 o’clock in lecture hall 2310, in which the industry’s entrepreneurs gather together to share their experiences in working as an entrepreneur.


The purpose of the seminar is to highlight and present the gaming industry as a whole, bring students from LUT and Saimia together to hear about and to get inspired into entrepreneurialism by giving them a taste of what it’s all about, and to provide a forum for entrepreneurs to tell about their companies and operations.


Today gaming is the leader in the global entertainment business, as games are bigger than music or movies. The Finnish game industry is a true success story and in the past couple of years has been growing wildly. The start-up scene is boosting and we can see small gaming companies becoming big players in the industry very quickly. Superstar companies like Rovio and Supercell are leading the way, but they are just the tip of the iceberg. Finland has a good potential to become the Nordic gaming hotspot.


Tag along, bring your friends and take part in the highly boosted gaming industry. This is going to be a multiplayer game!


NOTE: The seminar will be held in English! You don’t have to sign up, just show up.
