YC Gaming: Tech Talks & Job Expo w/ Emmett Shear, CEO of Twitch

Emmett Shear (CEO of Twitch) will join us and share his insights on how the business and technology of gaming is rapidly changing. This will be followed by YC founders giving 10-minute lightning talks on how their startups are poised to challenge and grow in the industry.

After the talks, we'll open up a virtual expo hall to meet with founders and teams of 8 YC gaming startups, so you can geek out about gaming and tech and learn about open roles in engineering, game design, art, marketing/media and more.

  • Designing from Day One: Artists as Founders, Sara Alfageeh and Thariq Shihipar, Founders at Multiverse (S20)
  • Synthetic Media: Virtual Influencers and Live Animation, Jay Rosenkrantz, Founder at Figments (S19)
  • Designing Characters with Deep Learning, Cory Li, Founder at Spellbrush (W18)
  • MMOs in the Instagram Era, Jimmy Xu, Founder at Highrise (S18)

To keep the conversations intimate in the expo hall and facilitate 1-1s, we're asking attendees to apply.

Looking forward to having you join us!
