Who should apply?

Are you an Entrepreneur?

If you’re passionate about games development but you also want to set yourselves up as a financially sustainable indie development studio, Tranzfuser is for you.

As part of a group of like-minded colleagues, you’re a confident team that can use your experiences from university to turn your prototype idea into a commercial business.

Applicants are skilled developers, but need support in the business development side of setting up a studio; taking a game to market, community building, industry networking and development of pitching skills are just a few of the key tenets to the Tranzfuser Enterprise experience.

Expected deliverables

Team Criteria

  • Team size 3-6 team members
  • We recommend that all team members commit to full time work on their prototype during the programme (approx. 35 hrs per week). We have found that teams who are unable to commit this time during the programme are unable to deliver to the quality and standard as teams who work full time and so are immediately at a disadvantage when it comes to submitting final deliverables
  • All team members must be UK residents
  • Have graduated between June 2021 – September 2023
  • Can work remotely or be represented by a Local Hub

Game IDea

  • The game idea can be completely new or have been worked on previously. Selection is made by teams evidencing (via their application and pitch video) what they are aiming to achieve during the course of the programme, outlining how they will deliver and highlighting what we should expect to see at the final showcase event
