Funding - there used to only be one way to find it in the game industry and that was through a publisher. Times are changing, especially in the mobile industry, and everyone from angel investors to traditional venture capital firms are starting to look at game developers as potential investments. Why take VC money? Where do you start? Who do you talk to? How do VC firms differ from publishers? This talk is a postmortem on our experience raising money over the course of several months, and will cover the entire process from strategy to the final deal.
This talk will cover why we chose to take VC money, who we talked to, the process for pitching, how we built our pitch deck and the strategy behind the fundraising experience. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how VCs work and how to get started raising money.
