Watch DIG London interview Brittany Medeiros, coordinator of www.onEDGENetwork.com
Ontario’s digital interactive industry has grown exponentially with incredible talent being procured and recruited regularly. Successful entrepreneurs have begun start-ups and seen their companies grow to multi-national corporations that foster the industry and those who work in it.
OnEDGENetwork.com is a new web platform that strives to bring awareness to the industry and connect the unique individuals within it.
As a not-for-profit web portal promoting the Ontario Interactive Games Industry, onEDGE is a resource created by the community for the community. Users can create profiles to connect with other companies and colleagues, build portfolio based pages specific to their background, project or business and connect with like minded individuals to collaborate or recruit new talent. onEDGE believes that , “if we want to grow we need to support our local companies.”
Brittany Medeiros is the web manager and face of onEDGE, and has been working with Interactive Ontario and the London Economic Development Corporation to see the goals of onEDGE come to fruition. “Our goal is to bring [people] together as one community, where we can break industry barriers” stated Brittany, a digital artist with a background in 3D Animation. “Companies and the community can collaborate and also be educated on what is new and exciting. Also, we are all about what this industry can bring, which is FUN.”
OnEDGE will be launching on November 14, 2012 at the DIG Conference in London, Ontario where Brittany will be hosting website tutorials and helping people to network, learn, explore, and connect with the site and with each other.
