"That three game companies top the list of Skövde's most revenue-generating businesses comes as no surprise to those of us within the industry. It demonstrates that the investment being made in Skövde is indeed yielding results! From the perspective of Science Park Skövde, the challenge lies in supporting both companies and the games industry to have eight game companies in the top ten list within five years. It's not an unrealistic goal and it indicates that the collaboration between the municipality, university, and business sector is a key success factor, with Science Park Skövde and Sweden Game Arena serving as facilitators and driving forces", says Marcus Toftedahl, project leader and business coach at Science Park Skövde and spokesperson for Sweden Game Arena.
