Burnout Game Ventures

BGV’s mission is to cultivate aspiring entrepreneurs in the areas of video games, simulation and VR/AR into successful businesses. We pick the most promising, train them on how to do it right the first time, and provide them with all the talent, resources, expert judgment, processes, motivation and marketing power they’ll need to achieve their dreams of developing, establishing and operating sustainable enterprises.

It’s all about processes. We know that the 95% failure rate for indie developers is because they don’t know and practice good project management. This is our specialty. We teach them “how to fish” in the high-risk ocean of the game industry. The goal is for them to release their first title within six months, and then “graduate” within the next six, as a self-sustaining studio (with their own Team, offices, resources, and revenue streams).

This is all conducted in a culture of entrepreneurship, based upon risk, initiative and creativity. So, if you think you have a great game or technology idea, want to add experience to your resume, or wish to mentor Teams of creatives that listen – let us know!

  • Never before have I seen a company that works so hard to see its clients succeed. Rupert is one of the most inspirational individuals I have ever worked with in my life, and he always tries his hardest to make sure his friends and business partners are taken care of.

  • Rupert has given us the opportunity to make our dream jobs a reality. Together, we took my idea and ran with it. I am now a business owner and making my dreams a reality. Rupert has always shown us the processes to follow and gives expert judgment when needed.

  • Rupert is an extremely business savvy and trustworthy leader for me. He has gotten me farther in my career than any other mentor I have had the privilege to work with. In less than six months, I went from only working on small projects, to being able to present an Alpha build of a AAA-style project to a group of my industry peers. I look forward to seeing what the future holds with BGV!
