About Us 
We started the Business of Indie Games in June 2018  to create a virtual summit focusing on the strategy, finance & marketing of indie games. It's taken well over a year of balancing day jobs, families and working nights and weekends to interview over 30 of the  best indie devs and games business people to share the hard knocks and great wins of working in this challenging but rewarding industry. We believe that you can learn from other people's hard lessons that they have learned from doing and and this format reaches everyone no matter budget, location or time.
