When & Where
YetiZen and IGDA
YetiZen is a key cornerstone of the game industry. We have two arms. The first is the YetiZen Innovation Lab, a 20,000 square feet games innovation space in the heart of San Francisco that provides free coplay (coworking but better!) for the game industry and the 150+ events for game developers including our popular San Francisco Game Developer’s Workshop series, which saw 6500 attendees last year making it the largest regularly meeting event globally.
Second we run the YetiZen accelerator program, the only games focused accelerator program in existence. The accelerator has 150+ mentors, 50 angels and 9 VCs (like Tim Chang from Mayfield Fund and Baris Aksoy from Intel Capital) who are the leaders of the game space. YetiZen has had 22 companies graduate from the accelerator program including Frenzoo makers of the world's first 3D fashion game for women (featured by Kindle and reaching top 20 iOS games) and YesGnome, a SIM and strategy game developer and the makers of the official Madagascar game.
The International Game Developers Association is the largest non-profit membership organization serving individuals that create video games. The IGDA aims to advance the careers and enhance the lives of game developers by connecting members with their peers, promoting professional development, and advocating on issues that affect the developer community.
