Frogdice Featured in Business Lexington News

Posted by:

Frogdice is featured as one of the primary case study examples of new tech companies and entrepreneurs growing and receiving investment in Lexington, KY.

Michael Hartman of Frogdice, an on-line gaming developer, says industry leaders repeatedly told him that to grow their company they would have to move. Frogdice already has a successful role-playing game, Threshold; they are growing their business by creating a new game called Coin n’ Carry, and they are also building an offshoot that creates games for other companies. Hartman and his wife travelled to Austin, Texas, and were looking for houses there when they heard about the Innovation and Commercialization Center and, ultimately, Nash.

Nash helped Frogdice stay in Lexington by finding office space, assisting in recruiting employees and, perhaps most importantly, helping find financing.
