A few years ago, I met Hugo Larochelle while both of us worked at Google. Hugo invited me to a Techaide cocktail at the Notman House where I’ve met incredible leaders who share a common goal: Give back to our community, mobilize resources and have an impact for Montréal. Since then, I’ve assembled an amazing team of leaders from 10 different game studios in Québec with the objective of organizing a fundraising event in 2021 for the video game community.
We are thrilled to announce the first edition of GGaide, which will take place on September 30th, 2021. The first philanthropic event of the gaming community in Québec. GGaide is a rallying event developed by and for the industry that aims to unite our ecosystem and share knowledge to raise funds for Centraide of Greater Montreal.
GGaide will present Inspirational talks and panels by industry leaders on the future of cloud gaming, user generated content, live operations, the creation of games for a female audience and much more. We will also feature a virtual silent auction where you’ll have the chance to acquire pieces of art, video gaming unique objects or signed sporting items.
GGaide is also a call to unite and to be emotionally connected with the greater Montreal reality, social inequalities and to make a positive impact for those who need it the most.
Tickets will be on sale as of September 14th. We’re looking forward to seeing you on the 30th of September 2021 for the first edition of GGaide.
