The “Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab” this year will again be hosted at the world’s biggest start-up campus, Station F in Paris, France, as well as in Singapore's PIXEL innovation space managed by the Info-communications Media Development Authority.

In collaboration with the Singapore studio, the newest program will recruit for its first season of start-ups residing at PIXEL.

“We are now heading into our fourth season of our startup program at Station F in Paris, and are very happy to extend the Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab to Singapore,” said Catherine Seys, startup program director at the Strategic Innovation Lab, which manages the program. “Ubisoft Singapore has been established for more than 10 years, and from what we already know of the region we are confident that its vibrant local tech ecosystem and strong talent pool are key ingredients for budding startups.”

All selected startups, in both campuses, will benefit from a six-month personalized program enabling each entrepreneur to interact with Ubisoft experts as well as partners across the company`s international network. The mentor of this new season is Serge Hascoet, chief creative officer at Ubisoft, whose over 30 years of experience and creative vision for the company will be an invaluable asset to them.

  • The exploration of the links between Blockchain technology and entertainment, in the continuity of the previous seasons;
  • Extended entertainment services: innovative services with the goal of improving entertainment experiences before, during and after gaming sessions.
