Tenshi Two Day Bootcamp With Unreal Engine & TIGA

12th & 13th March, Grant Thornton, Finsbury Square, London.  

A Two Day BOOTCAMP of intense sessions and mentoring to prepare studios for success in the modern games industry. The program is aimed at early stage businesses, or even pre-launch, with practical advice and one-on-one support focused on accessing investment, signing publishing deals and building an audience for self-published games.

The event features two themed days (March 12th and 13th) at Grant Thornton, Finsbury Square, London.

The Tenshi team of Ian Baverstock, Jonathan Newth, Ed Daly, Matt Woodley & Matt Sansam who between them have started, bought and sold games businesses, have worked for start-ups and the world’s largest games companies.   The event will feature games lawyers, publisher acquisition experts, digital marketeers and investors.

In addition, the event will be supported by Epic Games who will be speaking and sponsoring. “We are supporting indie games developers and start-ups by sharing our expertise and giving attendees the chance to learn lessons from our own war stories,” said Epic Games European Territory Manager Mike Gamble. “Epic has a long history of helping small teams get a leg up in the business, and we look forward to meeting with developers who are looking for advice at the bootcamp.”
