As part of a win-win strategy plan, MediaCity UK announced today that for the next six months, they are offering startup and freelancer companies a prime rent-free real estate. This new initiative dubbed "The Propeller Room" offers free studio space in The Landing, a digital enterprise hub located in Salford, England.
"Having worked closely with the gaming community on a number of projects over the last two years, what has become increasingly clear is that we have a wealth of talent that struggles to find studio space which is both cost-effective and appropriate to the games sector," said The Landing's partnership Director Ann Darby.
"By bringing such companies into The Landing, and creating a space like The Propeller Room, it gives firms a fantastic platform from which to build upon and gives us a pipeline of the north west's best gaming start-ups. This will pay dividends to us and the wider local economy in the future and is a genuine win-win."
At the moment, The Landing counts a little more then 100 registered companies. All of which have access to technical infrastructure, project management resources, breakout rooms and secure storage facilities.
