As part of the MIT Enterprise Forum of Cambridge, The Games and Entertainment Circle is the intersection for a dynamic games and interactive entertainment industry in the Boston area and New England.

Through partnerships as well as networking and educational events, the Games Circle seeks to further develop the local games and interactive entertainment industry, to drive awareness of New England as a “hub” of the game industry, and encourage growth in our area.

Regularly scheduled Games Circle educational events concentrate on the timely issues influencing this converging industry. Sessions are designed to address topical concerns and encourage networking among established industry players as well as fledgling game, virtual world and entertainment companies.

Executives from local game development companies as well as interactive entertainment entrepreneurs, investors, venture capitalists, publishers, and service providers catering this industry, are encouraged to attend our events.
