Thanks for taking time to read our proposal. We’re here with your help to bring a new experience to Manchester. We are a couple of guys with a huge passion for gaming. Brought up in the era of the SNES and the Sega then the PlayStation and so on...All we have ever known is a constant cycle of new and amazing consoles along with PCs and its ever changing hardware. Expensive era for us as kids back then. Stressed parents on budgets being hassled for the latest tech at Christmas or the upcoming birthday. Then as tech advanced and you all of a sudden didn’t have to leave the house to play games with friends it suddenly become less but more social. Gaming has become huge but socialising properly has declined.
This is where our proposal comes into play. We recently visited a few arcades and was instantly surprised to find that everything was still retro, nothing modern with the exception of a couple which charged extortionate prices as you had to pay for the full experience.
There are a lot of people that don’t want that experience. I mean personally, it was fun but we got bored very quickly. This is where our idea for Ctrl Alt Elite came into play. What if you could go to a place to socialise on modern consoles and tech with or without your friends after work. Or before. For a coffee or a beer and a bite to eat. While paying by the hour without a few dozen arcade machines bursting your ear drums. We want to create Manchester’s first gaming lounge fitted with all the latest consoles and PCs equipped with top spec hardware so you have a place to hang out after a hard day at the office. Pubs are becoming outdated and quieter by the minute. Our vision is to create/update anew social hangout. A “tech lounge” if you will, after all this is the age of technology so why haven’t we updated our social hangout spots yet? Manchester has dropped behind and we want to fix that.
We need your help to reach our target to be able to fund this idea. Our target will cover all expenses for year one, everything from rent to insurances, legal fees and architect designers right up to the purchase of all tech. This will see us through year 1 firing straight into year 2.
We plan to be open 7 days a week 12 hours per day. Roughly from 10am till 10pm or 11am while 11pm fridays and saturdays. While our plan is to make it a pay by the hour type of lounge we will be open to venue hire and party packages. Our research and business plan shows this to be a profitable business while maintaining a lower than your average arcade cost. Creating a fun atmosphere for those who don’t have the latest tech at home or simple those just wishing to hang out with friends.
We also plan to having gaming tutorials for those less experienced players and workshops for the more advanced. With connection possibilities to local colleges and universities that are connected in the gaming industry.
Think Starbucks or Tim Hortons high tech’d out. Food and beverage while you game. An atmosphere that help you forget about the hard day you just had.
Have a score to settle with your friends on fifa? Need to settle that work colleague argument of whose better at mario karts? All while in a fun diverse environment that will deliver the best satisfaction? That’s our vision. That’s what we want to bring to you. That’s our passion.
