Palm founded an accelerator called Stugan (or cabin in English). He is inviting 20 aspiring developers to spend two summer months in a cabin in the Swedish woods during the summer of 2015 to work on their upcoming games. During this non-profit initiative the young developers will also learn the tricks of marketing, business models and entrepreneurship. Other mentors and workshop leaders who will be part of Stugan include: Jens Bergensten (lead developer, Minecraft); Oskar Burman (GM, Rovio Stockholm); Christofer Sundberg (creative director, Avalanche Studios); Paul Bragiel (managing partner and co-founder of I/O Ventures); and Alexander Ekvall (director of product, King).
