Enterprise PAthway (AKA START A STUDIO)
NOW CLOSED. The following information is supplied for reference only. Teams selected for support from the UK Games Fund will be announced soon. Check back here for updates.
Who should Apply?
This Pathway is for the Entrepreneurs; you’re passionate about games development but you also want to set yourselves up as a financially sustainable indie development studio.
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 Pathway experience.
Expected deliverables by the end of Enterprise Pathway
- Team size 4-6 team members
- All team members must be able to 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
- Have graduated between June 2019 – September 2021
- Can work remotely or be represented by a Local Hub
- The game idea can be completely new or have been worked on previously
- Can be linked to the Environment Pathway

All details relating to the criteria for the selection of teams can be found on this page.
Applicants are also strongly advised to download and read through the Enterprise Pathway Application Factsheet, sign up to an Application Information Session and check out the FAQs.
Applicants are invited to apply to their Local Hub to take part in the Enterprise Pathway. If a suitable Local Hub cannot be found, or if you know of one that is not listed, there are options to apply directly or nominate a Local Hub.
