Introducing the G4C Industry Circle:
A group of pioneering organizations

1503_1_industry-circle-announce

In a first-of-its-kind effort to acknowledge the achievements and opportunities in the games for change sector, we are pleased to announce a new initiative called the Industry Circle.

We are recognizing some of the businesses and entrepreneurs who are taking risks, developing viable business models, and emerging as leaders in the sector. We believe that identifying and sharing best practices and lessons learned can inspire and invite others to forge new paths in the field.

As part of this initiative, Industry Circle members are lending generous support to this year’s G4C Festival, where they will also share some of the keys to their success with our community at the Town Hall Q&A.
