Game Garden Academy is a portfolio of online video courses about game business for starting game developers and students. Game Garden Academy covers a range of topics that developers have to deal with today: marketing, PR, monetization, funding, publishing, team composition, and more. Speakers with years of experience in the video games industry share their expertise and give hands-on tips & tricks to up your game when it comes to entrepreneurship. Game Garden Academy focuses on providing practical examples and personal stories instead of dry statistics. With these courses, developers have a solid basis to do business in the volatile, ever-changing games industry.


Game Garden Academy started by Dutch Game Garden in 2017. Since 2008, Dutch Game Garden has been working closely with over 40 game startups, earning a ton of valuable information about how game studios work, their strengths and their pitfalls. Most game developers want to make the best game ever. Yet, game developers miss out on a lot of opportunities simply because they do not have the know-how of how to deal with the other side: running a business. Business expertise is lacking in the industry, especially in small teams. With Game Garden Academy, we aim to provide developers the foundation they need to get started on a wide range of subjects that will cross your path as a game developer.
