Each year, the Virginia Serious Game Institute invites applicants to reside in the business incubator located on the George Mason University – Prince William Campus in Prince William County, Virginia. Each application requires the submission of a business plan summary, or company one-page summary. Applications are considered on how well the business plan or proposal encompasses the development of product software, hardware, or Information Technology services and financial feasibility. An advisory board of distinguished investors and industry experts judge and select the qualifying candidates. This year capacity has increased to allow seven new start-ups to enter the VSGI.
For more information, and to find out more about the submission process, please read the VSGI’s News Release.
