Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 launches Investor Connector | Pocket Gamer.biz

Spread the love

We hear from a lot of people at our shows that one of the things they’re looking for is the chance to secure investment for their game, studio or even becoming publishers. So for 2019, we’ve made it easier than ever to find the right investor for you…

We’re always looking for ways to make Pocket Gamer Connects London better every year and the all-new Investor Connector is the special spice we’ve cooked up this time. It’s a brand new show feature that pairs games companies – or individuals – with an investor looking to spend the right kind of money in the right sector.

How does it work?

We know what our panel of investors – from a range of the most active and successful companies – are looking for, so we ask you a few questions ahead of time and match your answers with their interests.

We won’t ask for your inside leg measurement, but obvious things like how much funding you’re looking for – whether we’re talking thousands or yes, millions – as well as a few details about you. Our investors will want to hear a little about your company vision, who’s on the team, what the business model is and what you would use the money for.

Let us know the info using this form and if you make it through the approval process, we’ll line you up a one-to-one slot with an investor that’s hot to trot. After that, it’s all up to you!

When and where

The first ever Investor Connector will run on the morning of the first day of Pocket Gamer Connects London, 21st January 2019. We’ll provide a relaxed environment for proceedings within the Montcalm Hotel’s event rooms, right across the courtyard from the main entrance to the show’s venue at The Brewery.

Investor Connector is only open to registered attendees of Connects London 2019 – and we will be checking! Not booked yet? Tssk! Luckily, you still have time to get your ticket before our Mid-Term prices end on the 13th and save up to $250. You can do that here.

Good luck!
