We are partnering with Ukie to recruit a cohort of ten early stage game developer mentees and provide support and advice from industry experts (including Wakefield based Team17) on some of the key skills needed to run a successful games business.
The content will be tailored to the needs of our games mentees. Advice will include:
Each mentee will receive 10 hours of support between November 2020 and March 2021. This will consist of several 2-3 hour group sessions and 1:1 support. Whilst we hope to deliver some of the content face to face, current Covid-related restrictions means that the sessions will initially take place remotely. If we are in a position to deliver the mentoring in person, all sessions will take place in Wakefield and adhere to social distancing regulations.
We welcome applications from businesses and individuals across Yorkshire however priority will be given to Wakefield based applicants. Whilst applicants at any stage of business growth will be considered, our games cohort content will be best suited to early stage games developers or freelancers already involved in making games.
