Martin Kenwright

CEO

Founded 2013

Starship is a digital media, entertainment and technology company. We decided to settle in Liverpool for a number of reasons: the depth and breadth of the talent pool, low business overheads, cost of living, quality of life, three universities and the fact that it is an established centre of excellence for software development within the games industry.

 

Even though we had to build a completely new development studio from the ground up, the team we were able to recruit in the city has a formidable track record, decades of individual experience, phenomenal technical skills and are incredibly talented.
