Tech Valley Game Space is a community and coworking space for game developers and interactive artists in the NY Capital Region. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to encourage and enable everyone in the Capital Region to create games. Our work focuses on supporting independent and aspiring game makers in order to foster a more diverse, approachable, and thriving game development community within our region.
Improving access to game development education is a major component of our efforts. We believe that paying indie game makers to provide diversity-focused skill training for aspiring creators is the key to a "virtuous cycle" that will serve as a vital foundation for strengthening our regional ecosystem.
Our educational programs help provide much-needed financial stability for local indies, freelancers, and entrepreneurs, enabling them to freely allocate their time between paid teaching opportunities and their own creative endeavors based on their current goals and economic needs. At the same time, these mentorship programs also help open up the pipeline to a wider array of aspiring creators, providing essential support and nurturing the next generation of talent who will continue to push our region forward in the future.
