  • What people are saying…

    Massachusetts is not only one of the largest digital games clusters in the United States, representing a $2 billion industry and employing approximately 4,000 people [directly and indirectly] across the state, but we are also home to strong academic institutions focused on digital game design and development. This presents a real opportunity for MassDiGI to promote collaboration between academia and industry, nurture existing and new talent, and strengthen the industry’s growing presence in the Commonwealth. We’re excited about the partnerships already underway and the future collaborations this new institute will foster.
