What is Global Top Round?

GTR(Global Top Round) envisions of building a global ecosystem to support early stage game studios, providing “creative and sustainable futures.”



GTR is an interactive accelerator and creative global publishing platform dedicated to supporting small studios from all over the world with the development, publishing, and fundraising expertise necessary to take their content global and make business sustainable. GTR provides a tangible 6+ month acceleration program, directly invests in annual Top10 studios and leads follow-up investment rounds for growth.

The GTR Conference is an annual gathering that serves as a networking event for the GTR community and as a celebration of GTR Accelerator studios. The conference is a private event attended by investors, publishers, partners, and annual Top 20 finalists among global applicants. On October 27th and 28th, we come together to celebrate our finalist studios and announce the selection of this year’s GTR cohort.
