A Week in San Francisco

I was very fortunate to be able to travel to San Francisco to attend the annual Game Developer Conference. It was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with some old friends as well as make some new ones.

One of the highlights was the “Comedy Roast” at the ODC Theater on Thursday, the 23rd of March. There, I got to pitch Ashta in front of a panel of angel investors and comedians, which was a lot of fun. After the show, there was some great networking followed by a fantastic Mexican dinner.

The networking continued at the speed dating sessions at the GDC the following day. It was intense but I met so many interesting people there that it was well worth the effort.

Earlier in the week, I already had an opportunity to present Ashta to a wonderful crowd at the European Games Showcase. In between meetings and sessions, I managed to catch up with my fellow delegates for a succession of breakfasts and lunches.

My deepest gratitude goes to the people behind Kreativ-Transfer, who, through their generous contribution, made this journey possible. Many thanks also to our funders from the Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg and the Federal Games Fund as well as Leonard and Harvey for being such awesome hosts and for making me feel welcome and comfortable.
