Playkey participated in the Web&Tech Ready contest and finished as a runner-up in “Technologies for game development” category. Thus we earned not only acknowledgment from the IT experts, not only their mentorship and PR support, but also a lovely 4 000 000 rubles (~ $64 000) grant for further Playkey development.
Web&Tech Ready is an international contest and investment forum for IT-projects. It was established back in 2009 with the help of Skolkovo Foundation. Winning a prize in one of its categories means high level of interest to the project from IT community and potential investors.
