Sony Interactive Entertainment Italia announces its participation as a partner in the program of acceleration Cinecittà Game Hub, promoted by Cinecittà, Regione Lazio and Ministry of Culture. The programme provides for the support, start-up and development of ten innovative start-ups of the Italian video game industry.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Italia will provide its contribution, in terms of experience and know-how, during the acceleration program and will also provide a PlayStation development kit and a non-profit investment to support one of the 10 start-ups. The start-up selection will take place following the participation of SIE Italia in the demo day, a day when each start-up will present its advanced prototype to a public of publishers, investors and professionals.
