Tim - a new player in the Arctic Game team
In his new role, Tim Leinert works to ensure that northern Sweden becomes a strong player to be reckoned with when the gaming industry grows and takes new forms.
What do you do in your new role?
I'm on a mission to build a sustainable game industry in Northern Sweden as a Business Developer and Project Manager at Arctic Game. Some of my projects include the European Videogame Accelerator and strengthening the Baltic Sea game industry - where I collaborate with countries like Germany, Estonia, Lithuania, Denmark, and Poland.
What experiences/roles do you bring from your previous work?
Before this, I was the Product Director at North Kingdom, a digital experience agency, where I was the team lead for all Supercell projects. A highlight was helping Supercell create a digital world championship platform for Clash of Clans and Clash Royale with millions of users.
Who are you outside of work?
You'll often find me working on improving my running routines - it's a constant work in progress, but I'm determined!
Arctic Game is a cluster run by Skellefteå Science City. The cluster is working to create a strategic platform for the game industry in northern Sweden.
With a focus on Skellefteå's societal transformation and environmental goals, games were created by 50 participants at an intensive Mashup Game Jam.
The project Intersective Game, in collaboration with Automation Region, hosted a lecture and workshop. The event was held in both Skellefteå and Luleå, attracting over fifty participants from various industry sectors.
