Last Friday 27th, Alejandro Casanova, Head of New Business Development and the Digital Area, R. Franco, took part in the roundtable about project funding in the gaming industry, and was member of the jury of the talent contest, within the Talent Day, including a wide programme of activities and events being held in Bilbao’s “Fun &Serious Games Festival”. Therefore, R. Franco stands alongside the big names in the national and international video games independent industry, contributing towards implementing a new way of focusing on gaming events and rewarding talent and creative efforts.
“Fun & Serious Games Festival” is a referent in the video game industry within Europe. The most important meeting point and focus for synergies and networking intended for independent research, start-ups, video game developers, investors and the general and specialised media, it also includes a wide programme of roundtables, networking, workshops and conferences aimed both at companies and at the general public. And all of this is clearly oriented towards searching for talent, creativity, marketing, visibility, communication and funding.
R. Franco takes a very active role in this focus, as Alejandro Casanova highlighted in the roundtable about project funding, commenting that “R. Franco is going to be committed towards entrepreneurship and innovation within the digital economy. This clear vocation will materialise in the announcement, to be made soon, of our own talent project (…).”
Sponsoring start-ups, Wanabet, the R. Franco online platform, is already true since November 17th. And this is only beginning. In a very short period of time, the R. Franco Group, with Casanova heading the Digital Area, has taken a significant step forward to become positioned at the forefront in the industry, taking part not only as an actor, but also as a key speaker at the main events and at the most representative discussion and debate forums.
