Screen Yorkshire and Game Republic are hosting a games investor event as part of the Eurogamer Expo in London. Games Invest 2010 is an opportunity for small-to-medium-sized games companies to find out more about games investment, and also have an opportunity to network and pitch informally and formally to investors. Games Invest 2010 has a skew towards project investment, although equity investment will also be featured.
Every ticket purchase
for Games Invest 2010 includes a morning of sessions presented by investors, a networking lunch, full access to the Eurogamer Expo and GamesIndustry.biz Career Fair, plus an application form for games companies to
apply for meetings with games investors.
Investors will have full access to your investment meeting application form before the event and, if you're successful, will use this information to
arrange formal half-hour afternoon meetings in private meeting rooms with you on October 1st. Investors
will contact companies they wish to meet at Games Invest 2010 by Friday 24th September.
All attendees will also have an opportunity to informally meet investors during the networking lunch.
