Each company accepted onto the Games Accelerator will be allocated two places at all of our bespoke masterclasses, events and workshops in the critical areas you need to fast track your business.

The Games Accelerator will be delivered virtually across approximately six half days in October and November. Full details of the programme and information on how to apply will be available from Tuesday 9 August at Applications are open until Wednesday 14 September.
