The Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s game development team offer a unique Business Accelerator programme that empowers students to form start-up games studios supported by our specialist incubation centre and business mentoring.
One of the key elements of our support programme is the incubation support that we provide. The Enterprise Lounge is based at the university’s Wrexham campus and offer furnished office space, in-house expert support and a whole range of essential business resources and facilities to students, graduates and members of the local community looking to turn their business ideas into reality.
With a focus on those businesses at the very earliest stages of their development, the cost of being based within the centre starts from only £10 per week plus VAT.
The Enterprise Lounge helps to break down the barriers which stand in the way of many new businesses whilst they are in their infancy – providing cost-effective work space, a network of support as well as local business and specialist expertise.
ZONE Enterprise Hub, Wrexham Glyndŵr University’s dedicated enterprise service, provides every occupant of the Enterprise Lounge with expert business support, one-to-one mentoring, and access to workshops and training in all areas of business development.
Level Up Wales founder, Rich Hebblewhite said “We currently have several indie games studios based within the Enterprise Lounge who are either working towards the successful launch of their first games, or continuing to build upon and strengthen their business”.
“Our aim is to continue to empower recent/soon to be graduates to achieve their potential and build their own games studios. The future health of both the Welsh and wider UK games industry depends on success at the grass roots level”.
Our Business Accelerator teams will be exhibiting their latest products at Level Up Wales 2017 and will be on hand to offer answer questions, and offer support and advice for anyone interested in getting into the games industry.
