The program intends to provide creators resources such as coaching, networking, and access to tools.

"Interactive Entertainment is one of the fastest-growing industries in the UK, with the global gaming market on track to surpass $300 billion by 2026," said Coutts interactive entertainment lead Paul Franks.

"By helping entrepreneurs form a business and a strategy behind something that is normally considered a hobby, we're striving to change the misconception that being in interactive entertainment isn't a 'real career'".
