Torchbearer Interactive Ltd
Formed by three aspiring student entrepreneurs attracted to the University of Huddersfield for its Enterprise Placement Year opportunity, software development company Torchbearer Interactive Ltd creates games, as well as designing the tools to support games developers.
Already onto a flying start, the team has won the Shooting Star Award from Huddersfield Town Football Club, secured £15k from Creative England, and contributed to funding secured for fellow placement year business Ocean Spark Studios through its collaborative work.
Exciting plans in the pipeline look set to catapult the business, with short term goals to expand the team and create regular income, in order to achieve the team’s ultimate ambition to complete its first in-house game Cloud Cover, where players control the weather.
Through their Enterprise Placement Year in 2016/17, Ed, Jon and Pete have grasped the business world, collectively developing a solid business plan and a streamlined way of working. The team continues to benefit from support from the Enterprise Team.
