The overall aim of Scandinavian Game Developers has been to ensure
that entrepreneurs in the Scandinavian gaming industry can establish
viable companies and survive in a highly competitive business
environment.

When the project started, the gaming industry needed new business
models. The project’s Swedish partner, the University of Skövde,
designed a business model for entertainment and educational games – and
business coaches, who counselled the young startups in the 2 project
incubators, ensured the mainstreaming of the new model.

The project established 22 new small companies which now employ 67
persons, and just recently one of these companies attracted an external
investment of around € 270.000 (or 2 million DKK). All the new companies
have stated that the incubators have been vital to the survival of
their companies, and that they will continue to develop their companies
in the incubators which they see as very dynamic and inspiring
environments.

Apart from the business models and trainings, the project has
produced and disseminated a number of magazines on how to create and run
companies in the games industry and has created a database on
Scandinavian competences within the gaming industry which resulted in 78
cross border meetings, conferences, and workshops with a total of 1793
participants.
