Video game accelerator program Global Top Round (GTR), has today
announced its GTR 2022 Conference will be held in Luleå Sweden from November 9-10 in
partnership with the government of Sweden. The annual conference brings together studios,
publishers, investors, and influencers from throughout the gaming industry to network at one
event. At the end of this invite-only conference, GTR will select 10 of the most promising studios
to be inducted into its annual accelerator program.
The accelerator program, which has gained prominent traction and recognition in the games
industry over the last several years, will grant funding starting at $40,000 to the 10 inducted
studios. In addition to the funding, the program will support the games and their business
development, make introductions to some of the biggest global publishers, and much more.
Chosen studios may also receive further investments from GTR’s newly launched Seed
Program, which invests between $150,000 – $300,000 to select projects.
“Global Top Round is more than just about investing in games. We’re building an ecosystem or
partners that are shaping the future of video game development,” said Pontus Mahler, Vice
President of Business Development at Global Top Round. “Our program is proof that not every
project needs to be a triple-A title. We can help build a game’s success with the right tools and
network. This year we’ll be bringing the brightest studios to Sweden to put their games on the
main stage and get them the support they need.”
Last year’s GTR conference partnered with gamescom Asia to host the event in Singapore. By
all standards the conference was a smashing success. It featured 22 studios and hosted 415
attendees, including several government officials, industry-leading publishers and investors, and
The accelerator program has invested in more than 50 game companies in the last two years
that have achieved more than $24 million in financing.
