The opportunity

We are confident in the
huge potential of UK studios

Great UK Games

Valued at $70 billion, the entire video games industry is exceptionally strong, and it’s widely acknowledged that mobile, tablet and PC gaming are exciting growth sectors.


Billion dollar companies such as Supercell, Rovio and Valve provide the proof that rapid expansion is possible within the mobile, tablet and PC markets. We will hand-pick a portfolio of the best up-and-coming studios in this space, to find the next big hit.

Backed by Kuju

Founded in 1998, Kuju is a leading developer of video games. We have experience of developing 120 titles, with world-renowned publishers such as Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo. In short, Kuju knows what it takes to make a great game.

Kuju will be hands-on in sharing our expertise with our portfolio. From concept to market, we’ll be there to support each studio every step of the way.
