Interested in gaming and esports? Curious to learn about how become a highly desirable candidate for employment or to start your own thing? Want to see how these industries will create job opportunities and shape Rhode Island business across the next decade? Come meet RIDIGI, the RHODE ISLAND DIGITAL GAMES INSTITUTE, to discover how a consortium of schools, businesses and entrepreneurs are crafting a digital future for our home state.
In this session, we will give a brief overview of RIDIGI and how it helps students “level up” in the game and esports space and helps businesses and talented students come together. We’ll also discuss the potential of esports and gaming to catalyze local innovation, and preserve ample time for questions and networking. Plus, we’ll have the latest video games developed right here in Rhode Island on display (and available to play!)
