Article posted: 26 Nov 2010
Three start-up gaming companies have launched their new ventures at Birmingham Science Park Aston which is fast becoming the city’s new hub for gaming entrepreneurs. Soshi Games, OOP! and InteGames are all occupying office space in Aston, based in incubator suites at BSPA, with a total of eight people working full-time on the three new gaming ventures.
Soshi Games and OOP! are based within the Park’s own Entrepreneurs for the Future (e4f) incubation suites, funded by the European Regional Development Fund, while InteGames is based within offices allocated for start-ups launched through the Birmingham Skills for Enterprise and Employability Network (BSEEN) programme.
Simon Jenner, head of incubation at BSPA said: “The games industry is becoming increasingly vital to the UK economy, with predictions that the multi-billion pound sector will grow by at least 10 per cent over the next four years, fuelled by the rise in online gaming. The West Midlands is now one of the strongest regions in the UK for the gaming economy and Birmingham Science Park Aston has become the city’s new hub for start-up companies entering the industry.”
