The Theme: “Create A Game”

Each quarterly Startup Accelerator cohort has a theme. For Q1 2023, the theme is “Gaming”. To be considered for this round, your business concept will need to create any type of game and launch it. It can be a digital game, a paper game, or any type of game you have in mind.

Recommended Preparation

Kubrio’s on-call team of seasoned business builders, who will be mentoring our students, have hand-picked this collection of mini “masterclasses” from our existing range of Nano Courses for the coming cohort. It’s important that students take the time to complete these courses before applying to increase their chances of being selected, and to get full value from the Accelerator

Start Your Own Business

You’re about to embark on a magical journey, on which you’ll find out how solving problems for individuals in a beautiful, and authentic manner is humanly heroic. How? Through starting your own business! And this also means making your own money.

Introduction to Game Design

By playing and designing games you can be a creator, bring joy into the world, become a problem solver, and also learn life skills. You have the power over what you do with games. And this course is your initiation into the world of game design!

Building Your Own Roblox Game

This course will allow the learner to explore the basics of Roblox Studio, create an obstacle game and share it with the world.

Creativity with Coding

Curious about coding? So take this course to learn how to code games, stories, art, animations, music, and so much more! All you need is your imagination and the Scratch website to keep yourself entertained while learning some valuable coding skills.

Introduction to Blender

In this Nanocourse I give an introductory look at the Blender user interface as well as the core functions needed to navigate the software.

How to make a business pitch

Did you know that speaking in public is one of the biggest human fears? But have no worries, it’s completely trainable and this nano will help you do so. In it, you'll gain the knowledge and confidence to present your business, and ideas in general.

Adobe Animate the Basics

This Nano includes a thorough review of the Adobe Animate interface including how to use tools and panels, and how to customize and save workspaces. You will also gain an understanding of authoring and output file types.

The Economics of Gaming

This course covers 8 core microeconomic concepts by highlighting the similarities between online video game economies and the real world economy. Students are encouraged to draw on their experience in virtual economies to help simplify microeconomic theory. Lessons are split into “quests”, and typically conclude with ‘side quests’ which challenge students to apply the new theory.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a single person apply?

Yes, we will accept solo founders. However, in our experience, solo ventures are very tough, and you're more likely to succeed - a have a better time - with at least one partner.

I have a great idea for a game, but I‘m not technical. Will you still accept me?

For this Accelerator, we feel it’s important to have the skills to build a game, rather than outsourcing it. If you can’t do it personally, you’ll need partners to help you build it.

Do you only accept software games?

No, we'll consider any type of game.

My game is almost live, can I still apply?

Sure, you will get a lot of value from our mentors.

Can I apply if I'm not enrolled in Kubrio?

No, you need to be enrolled. All students (including our new DIY pods, starting at only $290/year) can apply. However, there is no guarantee you will be accepted to the Accelerator. We consider each application individually, based on suitability and readiness.

What if I'm not accepted?

We suggest finishing all the recommended Nano Courses for this cohort, and if you have the Kubrio Superpowers tuition package enabled, you’ll be able to access all the Kubrio Clubs and Bootcamps in our upcoming “Press Play” season, running from January to March 2023 - with lots of gaming-related content for you to discover.

This theme is not my thing can I apply later?

Yes, every season will have a different theme, so stay tuned for what’s next.

What happens if I got rejected?

In life things are hard some times. But you will always have other options. If you are rejected, you can try to convince another team who got accepted to hire you, or you can try again next time.

What is the time commitment for this accelerator?

We expect you’ll be spending as little as a few hours a week to a whole lot more, depending on your type of venture, and your level of commitment and involvement. The main goal is for you to take every opportunity available to maximize your chance of a successful product launch.

How do you choose which game to accept?

We carefully evaluate every application, and if we think we can help you launch a viable product, you’re in!
