Its contributors are the FFF-Bayern (bavarian film funding), the WERK1 Game Division (incubator, events and network) as well as the Mediennetzwerk Bayern (Media Network Bavaria). These partners support the local games industry by contributing to an ecosystem for game startups as well as established companies.

The partners listed above are responsible for not only maintaining but also expanding the activities of this initiative.
