Video Games Investment
We have exciting news!
As a part of Premiere’s strategic expansion, we have taken our first step in to the world of video gaming.
As well as being an exciting new business in its own right with a strong team and innovative concept, the up and coming studio recently received advanced assurance from HMRC under the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) respectively. This indicates that the relevant investor’s shares should qualify for the generous tax benefits available under each scheme.
Dream Harvest is a self-described indie studio based locally to our offices in Brighton. And in case you didn’t already know, Brighton handily boasts the 3rd largest number of games companies in the UK (behind only London and Manchester), whilst also being the UK’s most entrepreneurial city, with the highest proportion of ‘creative’ start up businesses. The bustling seaside city is also home to some of the world’s most successful video games businesses, including our neighbours Boss Alien. Boss Alien generated $168 million in Q3 2018 alone for one game and are currently developing the first mobile Star Wars game.
We are very passionate about this investment and collaboration and will bring you all the latest updates when we can. We also look forward to bringing you further opportunities from the video games sector as we develop our expertise, relationships and services in order to best support the sector. A number of discussions are going on currently in this regard, so be sure to watch this space for development!
