Garden Incubation

The Incubation Program is one of our main focuses. Through monthly meetings, we help developers create and build their own professional game studio.


What’s in it for me?

We provide access to the knowledge required to run a business, connect you with experts in the games industry, and give you new insights into yourself and your company. Incubation centers around a specific theme each month. A theme around Marketing, Team Management, Strategy, Production, Financing, and Legal.

The Incubation Days increase your network, expand your knowledge, and inspire you to create an awesome company! Through the Incubation program, we offer access to Dutch Game Garden’s network of experts and we’ll offer tools to work on your company and business.

The program is free, but not without obligations. We expect studios to commit fully to the program, meaning that we expect you to be present, do your homework and share your knowledge with others. Together, we are stronger.

Incubation workshop

During the rest of the month, we facilitate this network through an online community and a digital learning platform. These allow all companies in our program to ask for advice from each other and do practical workshops, at any given time.


Dutch Game Garden is also an official Facilitator for a Start-Up Visa, meaning that game companies that want to immigrate and settle in the Netherlands can ask to join our program. Right now all spots are taken, but there might be spots opening up again soon.

If you are interested and if you have a game company, please read the rules from the Dutch government first. If you are still able and willing to follow their guidelines and still need a Facilitator, apply below with details about your game company and business plan for The Netherlands.

Due to the number of applications we receive and the lack of spots we can only respond to serious applications by game companies.
