With all the recent media coverage of the explosive growth in the online gaming space (Zynga, Rovio, Crowdstar, etc.), huge investment rounds for game developers (ie Kabam, Crowdstar, Wooga, etc.), and massive acquisitions (ie OpenFeint, Ngmoco, Playdom, Riot Games, etc), you may be wondering how to create your own successful online game company. This joint event between SV IGDA and SVF introduces video games companies (and others) to the world of Silicon Valley style company building. The event leads off with a fireside chat with Jason Citron (CEO/Founder, OpenFeint, which is a social mobile gaming company that was recently acquired by GREE of Japan for $104 million) and then is followed by a panel of experts that will cover what you need to know to get up and running and focused on success, spanning: founding team, company formation, bootstrapping, IP issues, 'hot' areas, operations, investors/funding, growth, and exits.

Panel Members:
  • Jason Citron (CEO/Founder, OpenFeint),
  • Marc Burch (Angel),
  • Mark Weeks (Cooley, legal expert),
  • Ben Savage (cofounder at Sibblingz, social game infrastructure), 
  • Ben Wan (former VC and current social gaming entrepreneur).

Agenda:
• 6-6:30 pm: Networking
• 6:30-7:00 pm: OpenFeint fireside chat (funding, growth, and exit)
• 7:00-8:00 pm: Panel
• 8:00-8:15 pm: Q&A
• 8:15-8:30 pm: Networking and close

Organizer

Silicon Valley Fundraising (SVF)

At SVF, entrepreneurship is a passion. Nearly all of our founders have started and run their own hightech businesses. We also have some serial entrepreneurs who have repeated the process multiple times, trying different approaches, and achieved market exits. Together we have collectively raised over $60 million from Angels, VCs, and corporate investors.

We understand where you are, maybe even more than you do, and know what you are trying to do and where you are trying to go. Working together we can assist you with your dreams because we have personally lived through the bootstrap days as well as accelerated our businesses with Silicon Valley investor financing.

Our goal is to help you understand how to build a great business and learn the nuances of Silicon Valley's investment culture. Briefly put, we are your inside track and your unfair advantage. If you have what it takes, working together, the sky is the limit.
