Ubisoft just announced the opening of applications for the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab’s 7th Season.
For this season, Ubisoft’s startup program will focus on two main tracks: Web3 and Positive Impact Entertainment. Applications are open to startups worldwide until the end of March.
Led by Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab, whose mission is to anticipate the future and help Ubisoft prepare for it, the program supports innovative startups creating products and services that have the potential to transform the entertainment industry. The program offers a unique collaboration model based on mutual commitment and knowledge sharing. Selected startups have access to a wide range of experts across Ubisoft.
This season, the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab will cover two tracks:
- Web3 to empower digital creativity – With a 5+ years’ experience exploring applications for blockchain in gaming via in-house R&D and partnership with renowned specialists and startups — such as Sorare which carried out the largest fundraising in French Tech, and Sky Mavis, developer of Axie Infinity, one of the most successful play-to-earn games — the Strategic Innovation Lab seeks to expand its exploration to decentralized technology and Web3’s applications in the future of gaming with a dedicated track.
- Positive Entertainment – Ubisoft is committed to enriching players’ lives with memorable, meaningful experiences. After fruitful collaborations during the previous season — such as with Brainleap, which focuses on better understand the benefits of specific game mechanics for players who are subject to ADD or ADHD — the Strategic Innovation Lab is pleased to continue supporting startups exploring new positive outcomes of digital experience whether it be in education, social bonding, employability, or health.
Applications are open until the end of March for startups with a project that addresses this new season’s topics through this link. Selected startups will be offered a workspace in our Vietnamese studio in Danang.
