How do you raise money for video games? What are the key factors that an investor looks for? How does the developer fare at each stage? This event provided a perspective from an angel, a venture capitalist and a developer about creating win-win relationships.

Speakers included Ed Vaizey, Minister for Communications, Culture and Creative Industries, Ian Livingstone, Eidos, Ben Holmes, Index Ventures and Tony Pearce, TeePee Games. The event was chaired by Matt Mead, Managing Director of NESTA Investments.

This event was prioritised for UK video games developers. Following the presentations our investor partners provided 1-2-1 speed meeting sessions lasting 15 minutes.
