Gamebook Technology wins Innovation Award BB 2015!
In a nutshell: terrific! Our Gamebook Technology not only made it into the finale of the Innovation Award Berlin Brandenburg 2015 – it got awarded! We are utterly delighted that our production environment is being officially considered one of the top innovations from the region.
The Innovation Awards BB are chosen by a jury of 18 experts from the fields of economy, politics and education who analyze and assess each project and its business approach. Berlin and Brandenburg have become a real hotspot for start-ups in the past years. So, rest assured there’s no shortage of promising entries for the Innovation Award: in 2015 it’s been 100. Making it into the finale and even getting decorated under these circumstances is–carefully phrased–no cakewalk.
The Gamebook Technology had already made its way into the finale of the IQ Innovation Award Central Germany earlier; and in both cases we were the only company representing the field of entertainment and interactive media. And as such we’re really happy that the technology that we’ve been using internally already for a while is also getting acknowledgment and accolades from external experts.
Throughout 2016 we’ll expand the user base step by step, keep on working on Gamebook Technology and incorporate feedback from our partners. Exciting times ahead! A big thanks to everyone who has been supporting us so far!
