Gamers add a new energy to PEI
Cody Clinton, 28, is founding director of the Startup Zone incubation space in Charlottetown and works as an investment officer attracting information and communications technology companies to Prince Edward Island.
"The government sees IT and the sector as a potential for growth from an economic and cultural community standpoint, because gamers add a new energy to PEI. People can be successful here and have a lifestyle that’s not Silicon Valley – not a two- or three-hour commute. You’re 10 or 15 minutes from home," said Clinton.
"A lot of people don’t know PEI has a video-game sector, so we’re really an underdog."
