New Mobile Game Incubator Execution Labs Opens in Canada
Execution Labs, a new incubator focused on the development of mobile games, has launched in Montreal. Participating companies will get funding, shared work space and access to the founders, mentors and marketing partners like GameStop, in return for a revenue share and equity stake. The co-founders are Jason Della Rocca, former director of the International Game Developers Association; Alexandre Pelletier-Normand, former head of deployment at Gameloft; and Keith Katz, former VP Monetization at OpenFeint (now Gree). The incubator has raised more than $1 million from investors, including BDC Venture Capital, Real Ventures and White Star Capital.
