The Incubator was launched in 2021 by #RaiseTheGame Pledge Partner Payload Studios and is a three-month virtual incubator program for early stage founders from underrepresented groups, including but not limited to, POC, lower socioeconomic backgrounds, LGBTQ+, underrepresented genders, people with disabilities and neurodiversities. 

To qualify for this first stage, applicants should be working on their first PC or console game and looking for focused support and networks to help take their game and business to the next stage.

The three-month virtual program will start in February 2024. All participants will be matched with an industry mentor and benefit from peer-to-peer learning and networking. The cohort will also be offered a program of weekly talks and group sessions by industry experts, so far over 45 games industry peers have supported the program. The program is split into five tracks, co-curated by previous participants, industry experts and the incubator’s academic partner, University of Greenwich. The tracks are – business and finance; team building; design, development and production; marketing and PR, and pitching and public speaking. The incubator will culminate in an industry showcase to help the cohort with the next stage of their development journey. 

The program is free for participants and is brought to you by Payload Studios and the Tentacle Zone with support from the University of Greenwich. Participants will be awarded a Continuing Professional Development Certificate from the University of Greenwich upon completion.
