Colombia and LatAm in general is not known for its video games industry, but more than 10 years ago some random guys (more out of ignorance than bravery), started a very unlikely business there: video games development. In this panel you will hear their stories and learnings in building what are now global operations, in a very organic, and at times painful, way.
This panel will be moderated by Randy Greenback and have participation from Eivar Rojas (CEO Efecto Studios), Carlos Rocha (CEO Below The Game) and Enrique Fuentes (CEO Teravision Games).
