|Session Name:||Advanced Entrepreneurship: Avoiding Total Studio Disaster|
|Speaker(s):||Jason Della Rocca|
|Company Name(s):||Execution Labs|
|Track / Format:||Production & Team Management|
|Overview:||Everyone generally agrees that entrepreneurship is an important thing, but what does that mean in the context of the business of games and running a studio? Being an entrepreneur means way more than just being willing to do the "business stuff". In many ways, taking entrepreneurship more seriously and adopting advanced techniques will give you a leg up. While nothing can guarantee success, taking a more advanced approach to entrepreneurship will certainly help you avoid shooting yourself in the foot and prevent total disaster. Topics covered will range from leadership skills, funding, studio vision and roadmap, marketing strategies, pitching approach, and mental state. Having invested in over 20 studios, concrete lessons will be shared from backing these entrepreneurial teams.|
