imagine.. Creative Industries Research has the pleasure of inviting Danish computer game developers, animators, and other interested to a half-day workshop on outsourcing opportunities with Biren Ghose, CEO Animation Bridge, India.

India is emerging as one of the dominant countries in the development of IT services, e.g. software programming. Outsourcing of development and programming activities from Western companies to Indian partners has taken a huge upswing during the last decade, and there is a range of exiting options for Danish computer games developers.

At the workshop, Biren Ghose will talk about some of the possibilities for a closer cooperation between Danish and Indian firms.  Biren Ghose will present his experiences with building of networks and partnerships between international developers and Indian programmers, also taking into account the issue of raising international venture capital. Biren Ghose will discuss directly with workshop participants the options for Danish firms using Indian ICT resources while obtaining finance from international sources.
