Ubisoft launches 6th season for Entreprenuer Lab with 11 startups
Led by Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab, the Entrepreneurs Lab supports innovative startups creating products and services that have the potential to transform the entertainment industry.
For its sixth season, the program will explore two tracks, all through remote online connections. As it is the case since the creation of the Entrepreneurs Lab, blockchain will be a key topic in order to keep exploring the possibilities offered by this technology for the future of entertainment.
And the second track will be dedicated to Positive Entertainment, supporting and exploring with startups the positive outcomes of digital experiences whether it be in education, social bonding, employability or health. A focus aligned with Ubisoft’s commitment to creating games with a positive influence.
Ubisoft said the participating companies include: Aleph (France), Anybrain (Portugal), Atlantide (France), BrainLeap (U.S.), Crucible (United Kingdom), Game Academy (United Kingdom),
Guild of Guardians (Australia), Horizon (Canada), Lexiko (France), NonFungible (Canada), and Virtuleap (Portugal).
Virginie Haas, chief studios operating officer at Ubisoft and sponsor of this 6th season, said in a statement that the lab partners will collaborate closely with Ubisoft and all will mutually benefit from the exchange of ideas. The track for positive entertainment aligns with Ubisoft’s mission to enrich players’ lives through original and memorable game experiences, she said.
