Platform6 startup house is a joint operation between several collaborators, with a mutual goal to fuel the creation of startups in their first years of activity, support existing ones and promote the quality of our companies and entrepreneurs. Tampere Game Hub is one of the co-operators of the startup house Platform6 as a part of Tampere Startup Hub Oy. Tampere Game Hub also has an office on the 4th floor.
Tampere Game Hub is an umbrella organization for all of the almost 40 gaming companies in the region. “We want to provide mentoring, networking opportunities, business delegations, office spaces, special equipment for game developers and developer gatherings in the Tampere region.” Says the Director of Tampere Game Hub, Tomi Toikka.
All game studios in the region can enjoy from events organized by Tampere Game Hub in the Platform6 5th floor event space, as well as services offered through our Tampere.games website – which features an extensive database of local game studios and partners. “We also organize (in close cooperation with the city) the Finnish Game Incubator program, which helps starting game teams get into proper game business. We currently have seven teams in our incubator program, with the total of 18 participants”, Toikka sums up.
Platform6 already has seven gaming companies, and there’s still room for more. “I would love to see Platform6 grow as a community and extend beyond our building to a full campus area. Later, we wish to help out more seasoned game studios to promote and show off their amazing games.” Toikka concludes.
