Beginning our 14th year – 10/19/23

Published on Thursday, October 19th, 2023

On October 19, 2010 an impressive group of people from across the game industry, higher education and the public sector gathered in Worcester for an event called “MASS Impact: Video Games, Economic Development & Job Creation” to kick around an idea – and that idea became Massachusetts Digital Games Institute. After that event, a steering committee was formed, another meeting was held and MassDigi was formally launched at an event on April 26, 2011. The rest is history.

Over the years, we’ve tried many things, some more successfully than others, made changes and adjustments, started up efforts and wound down some but we’ve always kept a primary focus on students, jobs and the games community. And, as we begin our 14th year, with change as a constant, that approach and that focus remains.
