About UK Games Talent

Who we are

UK Games Talent and Finance CIC is a newly established community interest company that has been established to help develop the UK games development sector, particularly at the early stage. We are not for profit and do not have share capital.

We are aiming to boost the UK’s games business and talent ecosystem. We want our funding to create jobs, promote diverse new teams, enhance skills and increase the amount of new games IPs in the UK. In short, we’re working to support the UK’s early-stage games development community.

UK Games Talent is a central pillar to the work UK Games Talent and Finance CIC is in place to do.

What we do

We want to improve the way that talented individuals and teams can come together and create new and innovative games IPs and use the experience to:

a) showcase their talent,
b) learn about the creative business process and
c) use the project as a key part of their portfolio for either employment or self-enterprise routes.
