As the first space of this kind in the country, Hub is meant for the development of indie game teams, startups and the strengthening of talented people to the end of improving the gaming ecosystem in Serbia.
By offering education programs, meetups, presentations and community events, Hub will act as a center where people can learn and develop their skill, cooperate, find associates and get help and support from the Nordeus team and other companies and professionals from this industry, the press release says.
The launching of this hub, specially designed to support the gaming industry in Belgrade and Serbia, was preceded by over a year of developing the concept, with a test space launched in December, which proved the need for one such initiative.
