The big day and the next round!

Filed under: Update — sharkinf @ 12:26 pm

Yesterday the teams finally got to show off everything they’ve achieved since we started the hub in October.

They presented their games and businesses to all of our visitors with great confidence and knowledge. What they’ve all done in the past 6 months is amazing and have gone from little or no development experience through to demonstrable products (and more), business plan and companies set up!

There’s a huge list of people that need thanking, from our supporters to the experts. All who have given up not only their time, but their vast amount of experience and knowledge. Having the likes of SquareEnix and Microsoft along side BDO and Birketts is invaluable. Plus the multitude of people from local developers like Tundra to trade bodies like UKIE and others to numerous to mention. The hub and the teams would never have gotten as far or done so well without it all, saying thank you doesn’t seem strong enough a word!

There’s also been a vast amount of learning for everyone involved and all of that has really helped inform and shape the future for the hub and how we help businesses get started and prosper in the region.

All of that also gave us the opportunity to announce that we’re going to be starting another round beginning in May!

We’ll be running interviews with prospective people during April and have 2 info days on the 15th at 11am and the 22nd at 1pm, more info will be posted nearer to the time. And we’ll make some more announcements with details over the coming days. For more info please email

Finally, some photos of the day.

Presentation day tomorrow!

Filed under: Update — sharkinf @ 12:50 pm

After 6 months of hard work, insightful experts, and far to many biscuits and cups of tea (well brewed in the Teaboys case 😉 ), tomorrow is the last day for the three teams taking part in the very first games hub!

Novo, Fateweaver and Teaboy Games will be showing what amazing work they’ve done with their games, business plans and pitches. From the awkward silences at the start, to full on game development companies and their helping shape the future of the hub and games development in the region.

We’ll do a much bigger update following on from the big day tomorrow plus, there will be an announcement and news on what’s coming up next!
