“During the competition I am in continued contact with the teams; I’m the go-to person for any and all questions relating to the mechanism of the competition. I also work closely with our network of Local Hubs (universities, enterprise hubs, etc.). I guess you could say the main thrust of my job is staying on top of everything that’s going on and keeping track of teams / hubs / events.”
“Watching the Tranzfuser story unfold on the big screen was quite an experience! It brought the competition to life again and we were able to re-live the ups and downs of the teams’ experiences during Tranzfuser.”
“All of the teams worked hard after securing their place on Tranzfuser 2017. Each of the 23 teams has put in a huge effort and each has benefitted significantly from real-world learning throughout. The winning teams are the ones that best managed the scope of their projects, had a shared creative objective across the team and better understood the target audience for their particular games.”
“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.”
“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.
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.
