Dare+ Bring Your Games Business To Life

Are you an aspiring game designer or developer?  Do you want to take your ideas and bring them to life, as part of an actual real world business?  Now there’s a faster, simpler way to get the sort of inside knowledge and insight which eludes some companies entirely.

Dare+ is a new programme, created by the team behind the Dare to be Digital competition and supported by Creative Scotland and the University of Abertay in Dundee.

Dare+ is looking for 20 creative individuals and would be entrepreneurs – either individuals or teams – who are looking for business support, mentoring and help to create a new company.

The programme runs from the 16th of July – 12th of August and includes three days at the Dare to be Digital Protoplay event, taking place in Dundee from August 10th-12th).  This is a day-residential programme with accommodation provided by Abertay University.  Dare + is FREE to successful applicants.

The programme is led by Brian McNicoll, one of the founders of the BAFTA-winning development studio Dynamo Games.

The programme promises to deliver help, advice, support and expertise on every aspect of starting a creative business, from concept creation through to business planning, investment and protecting intellectual property.

The goal of the programme is for individuals or teams to emerge with a prototype game, business plan and ideas of how to move forward.

You do NOT have to be a resident of Scotland to participate, but you do have to be over the age of 18.

You can find out more over on the Dare+ web page.

Applications close on July 6th 2012.  So get moving.
