Edu to Indy: Teaching Students Self-Reliance
SPEAKER/S: Paul Bellezza (Riot Games) and Jeremy Gibson (USC - Interactive Media Division)
DAY / TIME / LOCATION: Monday 3:00- 4:00 Room 301, South Hall
TRACK / FORMAT: GDC Education Summit / Lecture
DESCRIPTION: Most students dream of working on AAA titles at large game companies, but at some schools, there's a growing indie spirit leading students to start their own companies. Though this is a challenging and frightening path, it has become a sustainable reality for several University of Southern California alumni, including the founders of thatgamecompany, The Odd Gentlemen, and Codename. In this talk, USC faculty member Jeremy Gibson and Odd Gentlemen alumnus and co-founder Paul Bellezza explore how schools and individual teachers can encourage entrepreneurship in their students and help prepare them for indie greatness.

TAKEAWAY: Attendees learn how faculty can best prepare students to be self-reliant entrepreneurs as well as how students can create a successful studio through these lessons.
