Four new start-ups have each received a £10,000 incubation package, triggering the launch of their tech businesses at Birmingham Science Park’s Entrepreneurs for the Future Centre (e4f). A total of 58 companies are currently based at - or have graduated from - the business incubation centre, 13 of which specialise in digital gaming.
wallFour, Jamo Games, We Wana and Untyped will receive expert advice and mentoring to achieve investor readiness, as well as telephone, internet and office space at Birmingham Science Park for free for six months; a package which has a monetary value of £10,000.
Katherine Preston, e4f Business Incubation Manager at Birmingham Science Park said: “Since launching two and a half years ago, the Entrepreneurs for the Future Centre continues to grow from strength to strength. More of our tech start-ups are receiving seed finance from investors and becoming fast-growing, revenue generating businesses, enabling them to create new high-value jobs in Birmingham.
“We are able to offer a range of hot-desking options, as well as a good number of self-contained offices to cater for the needs of tech-start-ups. The office space is all based around brilliant communal break-out areas, which add to the strong sense of community at the Science Park.”
The four new start-ups include wallFour, which is creating a system that allows up to 100 simultaneous players to interact with giant digital projection screens using laser pointers. This interface can be used to design and produce collaborative crowd games for live performances.
