Vicky Potts is a co-founder of Whitepot Studios, a Belfast-based kickass games development studio. From making websites at the age of 11, it felt pretty inevitable she would end up in tech. She went on to graduate from Queen's University Belfast in 2015 straight into her first business, a bluetooth beacon solution for museums and other venues, taking part in Invest NI’s Propel Programme and winning the Ireland Funds Business Plan Competition. Now, at 27, she is onto her second business with Whitepot Studios - which won NI Game Of The Year for their title Tubocity. Adept with C# and Unity, she is utilising her tech background to transition to a business and production role, and been named MCV Women In Games Rising Star Of the Year.

Vicky Potts is speaking at the following session/s
