Vaasa Game Days is an international event taking place on 22–23 November 2017 at the University of Vaasa, focusing not only on digital and analog games but also on companies operating in the game industry. It is a venue for companies, gamers and fans to meet the industry's actors, experiencing the latest games and other game-related activities.
The event features console and computer games, as well as equipment ranging from various decades, from old classics to fresh novelties. The participating companies present themselves at their stands and there is also a variety of game tournaments and expert’s speeches.
VASEK is one of the main partners of the event. Senior Business Advisor Lasse Pohjala is eager to meet future professionals and entrepreneurs at the event:
”The game industry cluster in the region is already growing. A university city doesn’t lack talent nor future professionals. In game industry, as well as in a number of other fields, people become entrepreneurs through their hobbies that they turn into professional activities,” Pohjala says.
VASEK will be present at the event to give advice for the start-up phase. Enterprise Agency Startia, which is a part of VASEK, helps all beginning entrepreneurs, confidentially and free of charge with an aim to create viable businesses in the region.
”And as your business grows and develops further, VASEK is there to help you. Remember to contact us when you have plans to start a business, when it’s time to hire employees or when you wish to take the step into international markets,” Pohjala reminds.
