Getting off on the right foot


In our series of videos focused on private businesses, Chief Executive Officer of Neon Play, Oli Christie, talks to us about setting up the business, the importance of mentors and the little bit of luck that you need when looking for the right team.

Neon Play is a mobile games studio that creates iPhone and Android games.  Based in Cirencester, Neon Play already has a number of awards to its name including a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

Oli tells us how the arrival of smartphone technology gave him the opportunity to go it alone and set up his own business. Starting by himself, Oli had to build the business from the ground up. Finding Mark Allen at the start of the process helped them to build the company to a hugely successful mobile studio.
