SkyCanvas Games had been accepted into this year’s summer cohort at UOIT’s Brilliant Program Incubator!
Brilliant Entrepreneurship is a non-academic incubator that surrounds incubates like ourselves with professional entrepreneurial advisors. Throughout the 4-month summer cohort, Brilliant organizes a variety of guest speakers and networking opportunities to foster and sharpen our entrepreneurial skillsets. The Cohort began with an incredible 2-week opening entrepreneurial crash course which was jam packed with industry speakers and comprehensive workshops. In addition, brilliant provides incubates with a shared workspace located on UOIT, funding opportunities, expert mentorship, and networking opportunities.
Personally, my experience thus far has been very insightful and extremely encouraging. The advice and connections I’ve made have been catered specifically to the ambitions I have for our studio SkyCanvas Games and our first game Slash Dash Samurai. It’s made the experience that much more valuable.
As a startup developing on our first title SkyCanvas games and no real precious titles to vouch for our team as a reputable studio, I was under the impression that working in the games industry would be difficult since we only our words to convey our games, our team, and our vision. To my wonderful surprise I have found that there are so many opportunities for a studio at your stage of development. With many people such as the brilliant faculty who are extremely positive in propelling our efforts, It has very encouraging and makes us that much more excited for the future.
I will be sure to blog about our milestones and keep you guys updated on our experience as mentees at Brilliant, stay tuned!
Thanks for reading,
