"A vast expansion of G-Star investment market and G-star conference
for the start-up enterprises"
G-Star investment market, in which 26 investment companies and 22 small
to mid-size companies participated in Year '12, will be expanded sharply
this year. As the trend in the game market changes to mobile, the
association separately prepares the G-Star investment market for the
start-up enterprises, which were unable to secure booths at B2B
Exhibition. Accordingly, in this year's investment market, more than 40
investors and publishers are planning to provide investment and
publishing consultations to more than 50 small to mid-sized business
owners and start-up enterprises.
On the other hand, the G-star Conference, which took place with 5
sessions last year, grew the scale of the event this year with 30
sessions. In particular, this plans to grow as G-Star's main event, as
global companies such as Google (News - Alert), YouTube, DeNA, and Oculus are
planning to give lectures.
