The home of gaming entrepreneurs

WE ARE THE PLAYHUBS COMMUNITY.|| THE FUTURE OF THE GAMES INDUSTRY|| MADE AT SOMERSET HOUSE, LONDON||

WHAT IS PLAYHUBS?

playhubs is a co-working space for the games industry and an incubator for early stage games startups, located within Somerset House in the heart of London.

We are a not-for-profit organisation co-founded by David Gardner, David Lau-Kee, Paul Heydon, and Chris Lee. We support teams through mentorship, masterclasses, introductions to investors and by building a community of forward-thinking industry professionals.

OUR EVENTS
playhubs convenes the most important people in the games industry. Our events range from Headline evenings for learning from and meeting platform-holders, through masterclasses by and fireside chats with industry experts, to investor pitches and informal peer support sessions.
OUR COMMUNITY
The playhubs community is creating the future of the games industry. Our game developer members include brand new teams straight out of university, seasoned “veterans” working on a new project as well as people from more established studios looking to keep their finger on the pulse. They are supported by our service provider members and corporate partners, who are integral to the success of playhubs and the teams it houses.
