25 Sep 2014

Join Josh Nilson as he discusses how to think more like a start up vs a game studio. You will need to hire, recruit, mentor, lead and onboard people, but how can you do this? How do you track this, and where do you start? Josh will go through some of the huge mistakes East Side Games made and some of the practical things they did right as they grew from 6 people to 50 in a bootstrapped and scrappy studio.
