Minecraft as a Social Impact and Gaming Business

Tuesday, November 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm • Organized By STL Startup Week
Online Event


Children's test scores are down across the state, they have been socially isolated since the COVID-19 pandemic, and parents are looking for more progressive education methods. Harry Devitre represents the next generation of leaders who want to use their favorite social gaming tool, Minecraft, as a way to bring the community together. What first started with a YouTube channel, which has 76 subscribers, has now transformed into a platform where parents can easily help their kids join a social community of like-minded students pointed towards creating social change in the St. Louis region. In this session, we will provide an overview of the platform, demonstrate its unique value proposition in the marketplace, and open up the floor for feedback in order to make it better.
