Opportunity for British-based mobile games designers

StartUp Britain and leading independent mobile games publisher, Chillingo are on a mission to uncover the trailblazing British games entrepreneurs of the future.

The national enterprise campaign and prominent publisher of hit titles such as Cut the Rope, Feed Me Oil and Contre Jour are offering an exclusive opportunity to British games developers - to get their ideas in front of experts and enablers in a Dragon’s Den-style PitchUp opportunity.

Starting today app, designers and developers can submit their ideas to win real-time rewards – the chance to get the expert help they need to take their idea from post-design stage to mobile technology downloaded by millions.

Chillingo Chief Operations Officer Ed Rumley said: “There are many challenges and opportunities in today’s evolving mobile landscape. PitchUp provides a great way for talented developers to connect with Chillingo and share their innovative mobile gaming ideas.”

StartUp Britain co-founder Emma Jones said: “It’s really exciting to think that some start-up gamers out there might be just one tap away from changing their lives forever!

“The start-up and micro businesses we come across are bursting with great ideas – if only they could get them in front of the right people.

“Chillingo has a great ethos and is already set up to work with and nurture undiscovered talent, offering unrivalled experience, production and mentoring skills to take a game all the way market.”

The competition is part of StartUp Britain’s initiative to encourage more big businesses to help small and follows on from the campaign’s recent success with its PitchUp initiative which saw outdoor cushions manufacturer Oily Rag get its products stocked in John Lewis.
