Creative England's Greenshoots Fund Re-opens to Applications

Thursday, 11 July 2019

Funding is available for independent games studios in England (outside of Greater London) to develop new games for consoles and mobile devices.

Greenshoots is an investment initiative offering repayable investments for projects focused on helping games development companies overcome the hurdles of investment, marketing and discoverability. The investment will uncover independent developers who are creating innovative games, and can demonstrate high growth potential.

The programme offers investments of up to £100,000 per company. Successful applicants will get direct access Microsoft developer support teams and at least one group session hosted by Creative England and Xbox as part of the initiative.

The investment is intended to enable talented and independent game developers to create innovative content and build a portfolio of IP. The investment should be used towards development or marketing costs associated with the game concept.

The fund is open to businesses that:

are a games company based in any of the English regions outside of Greater London;

  • have previous, demonstrable game development experience; and
  •  
  • have an innovative game idea to be developed for commercial release on any operating system and platform – but must include a dedicated version for Windows 10, distributed via the Windows 10 Store, and/or Xbox One.
  •  

The deadline for receipt of applications for the next round is 11 August 2019.
