in Event announcements

The MIT Interactive Entertainment SIG is hosting an event tomorrow night featuring a panel of current and former game company executives discussing the rise (and in some cases, the fall) of companies and their pitfalls and successes along the way. Should be an interesting time!
Wednesday, March 5th – 6pm – 8pm

Getting Started and Succeeding

In December we talked to VCs and heard their side of the story in giving the money ‘away’. For our first session in 2008 we present the business owner side. Hear from a panel of some of Boston’s most successful start-ups in the interactive entertainment industry as they share their stories of humble beginnings, their biggest mistakes, greatest surprises and the stone-cold facts behind getting funded, published and running a business.

Panelists:

Jeff Anderson, Game Nirvana

Hank Howie, President, Blue Fang Games

Omar Khudari, former CEO, Papyrus Design Group

Moderator:
Rob Sebastian, CEO & Key Operating Partner, Ghost House Digital Studios
