Cologne Game Incubator
Application phase extended!

The application phase for the Cologne Game Incubator has been extended until May 24, 2019. [Apply now!]


The Cologne Game Incubator (short: CGI) primarily supports the development of game ideas into marketable products, providing its students and alumni with the opportunity to leverage their in-depth training and knowledge generated at CGL. The CGI is particularly responsive to the challenges that creative founders in the field of interactive entertainment and games have to face, and helps students and alumni to implement the practice-oriented training of CGI with team-oriented project work in economic surroundings.

There are two different types of scholarships:

“Young Starters” – for teams that have already founded, secured their funding and consist of CGL-students or alumni.

“New Talents“ – teams that haven’t founded yet a business and consist of CGL-students or alumni. Both groups receive mentoring by the Advisory Board and external industry experts. In addition, “New Talents” are supported by the founding service of the TH Köln in the development of a business plan and the application for an EXIST founder scholarship.
