In a world where innovation and disruption reign, the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI) is a key player. That was underscored today by the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce when it presented MassDiGI with a Game Changer Award.

The award, presented during the Chamber’s annual Game Changers Business Conference and Expo in Worcester’s Mechanics Hall, recognizes the most innovative companies, colleges and start-ups that are transforming and supporting the region’s economy. This year’s theme was the innovation economy and start-ups.
MassDiGI’s Executive Director Tim Loew and Managing Director Monty Sharma were on hand to receive the award.
“We are really proud of the work we do with the many students that we engage with across institutions in the region, the start-ups that we work with, and the communities”, said Tim Loew, MassDiGI’s executive director. “We feel really lucky to have been able to do this in Worcester, and at Becker.”
