Launchpad is an innovative incubation and acceleration games programme. We provide games graduates with a funded opportunity to start their own independent digital games studios. The methodology for incubation is unique – Launchpad aligns a team of 4 game developers with industry partners who provide market demand challenge briefs. The team then answer that challenge and create a product that demonstrates a ready customer base and immediate demand, assisted to market by their industry partner. Since the programme start, we have incubated many games and games technology companies, the majority of who have received publishing offers and investment funding of between £150 and £250k. We pay £16k tax free, offer a no-fees Masters qualification and a chance to be the Director of your own games company. So, if you’re a graduate or you provide the right level of experience, and you have coding, art, animation or design skills, apply now!
