“The high level of response to our second round of applications clearly reflects the shifting scale and nature of the sector.”
“Growing and developing the UK Games Fund community is central to our core purpose of helping to develop the UK games development sector, particularly at the early stage. Having our portfolio come together for the first time as a group, along with our VIP invitees, is the culmination of months of hard work to support, develop and promote the group.”
“The network of Regional Hubs we’ve so far established is highly motivated to provide the best base for Tranzfuser participants across the UK. All are leading names in talent development, we’re delighted to have them join us in Tranzfuser.”
“The way in which Tranzfuser will become a fresh talent pipeline for the UK Games Fund is a real first.”
“Having the opportunity to meet with and speak to potential applicants to this round across the UK has been incredibly rewarding. We expect a high standard of applications to be made on the back of some of these conversations” Paul Durrant, Founder of UK Games Talent and Finance CIC
These sessions are designed for both existing companies and fresh start-ups with a strong intention to submit an application to the present round.
“I hope this Fund will give them the boost and extra support they need and urge other games companies and developers to apply for funding.” Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy
The UK Games Fund team will be hitting the road again in the next few weeks as we plan application workshops for games developers who are considering applying to the Fund. Dates and venues are soon to be announced so be sure to check back with us soon.
The criteria for the second round of funding for grants of up to £25,000 from the UK Games Fund are published today.
