State of the Industry

The Truth About Gaming Investment


“I only invest in platforms, not game studios. I can’t stomach content risk”...

“There are few opportunities left for game studios...”


“Games studios take a long time to get funded...”

“I can’t invest right now, you need more traction. But let’s stay in touch”


Have you heard these words often? Are you looking for funding? Are you starting your own gaming studio and wondering what your investment potential might be? Want to know what’s actually happening in the gaming venture scene beyond the grossly overstated doom and gloom about the fall of gaming investments?

Join us on Monday, February 18th at 6PM as we cover all these topics and more!

For this month’s State of the Industry, we are proud to have our King of the Yeti’s [applause] aka (our YetiZen CEO Sana Choudary), speak about trends in gaming investments!

After Sana’s guest post on VentureBeat “2012 Investment: Busting myths by looking deeper at the numbers” we were flooded with questions. To answer them Sana is doing a one time deeper dive on the numbers and revealing insights not previously discussed.

YetiZen, as always, will be serving our homebrew “IceBreaker” alcoholic tea, Red Bull, and all the knowledge you can eat! See you there!
