“The Truths to Gaming and Start-up - SheSharp Edition” is organised by SheSharp, in collaboration with Geo AR Games & the New Zealand Game Developers Association (NZGDA). If you’re interested in Gaming, Augmented Reality, and Development, then this is an event you don’t want to miss!

Hear the inspiring story of Melanie, CEO of Geo AR Games, and learn how she grew her start-up and worked on national as well as international projects! It’s quite difficult for women to make it in the gaming industry and many females go through the stereotypical work environment. Melanie has some great tips for young women out there who are looking for a career in gaming, and how to make it in the industry! The gaming world needs women, like Talia Pua, Carol Taka and Vaanipriya Diwan, who are part of the panel on the night!

Although this event features all female speakers, anyone can attend; from high school/university students to professionals far into their careers, people of all genders, aspiring entrepreneurs, are all welcome. We have a range of activities lined up, such as networking, gaming, and play-testing sessions.
