"A vast expansion of G-Star investment market and G-star conference for the start-up enterprises"

G-Star investment market, in which 26 investment companies and 22 small to mid-size companies participated in Year '12, will be expanded sharply this year. As the trend in the game market changes to mobile, the association separately prepares the G-Star investment market for the start-up enterprises, which were unable to secure booths at B2B Exhibition. Accordingly, in this year's investment market, more than 40 investors and publishers are planning to provide investment and publishing consultations to more than 50 small to mid-sized business owners and start-up enterprises.

On the other hand, the G-star Conference, which took place with 5 sessions last year, grew the scale of the event this year with 30 sessions. In particular, this plans to grow as G-Star's main event, as global companies such as Google, YouTube, DeNA, and Oculus are planning to give lectures.
