Game Hub Scandinavia 2.0

  • About

    Game Hub Scandinavia 2.0 (GHS 2.0) will drive smart growth in Denmark and Sweden by fostering entrepreneurship in the gaming industry to reach the critical mass of businesses needed to penetrate global markets. GHS 2.0 builds on the good results, that was achieved in a previous project, Game Hub Scandinavia (GHS), which created 55 new companies and 200 jobs and started building a joint Scandinavian brand on global stages such as the US, China and India. In order to achieve the project objectives, in Sweden and Denmark, two ecosystems are established that represent the entire value chain, starting with youth education in the first phase, have higher education as the next part and the last part have incubation environments, and where GHS 2.0 expands the value chain with an acceleration module, so that companies can grow faster. The four mentioned challenges also form the basis of the research that is being carried out in the project.
