DAE Studios

DAE Studios is a Belgium-based spin off from the Howest University of Applied Sciences initiated by the program Digital Arts & Entertainment. Our main focus is to incubate and accelerate startups in the applied and entertainment game development business with the help of our existing community, extensive network and stakeholders.


Our ambition is to establish a cross-polunating community of startups, researchers and educational programs in order to generate international attraction for established game development studios. In order to boost students and startups in the game tech industry, we offer two programs:


  • 2 GAMES A MONTH INCUBATOR Each year, we offer students and alumni a unique 2 games a month incubator program in which they are getting coached in the art of fast game prototyping all while getting to know the sector during weekly inspiration and expert sessions thanks to our many partners.

  • STARTUP ACCELERATOR We help individuals and/or teams with a great business idea kickstart their company via our accelerator program. As a priviliged party, the startup will land their first work for hire contracts and/or investments.


DAE Studios is located at Hangar K in Kortrijk, right across campus The Level.
