Games Finance Market
The 2017 Games Finance Market - the UK's only event connecting games creators with funders from around the world - is now open for applications from developers, start-ups, investors and publishers.
Running as part of the London Games Festival (30 March to 9 April), the Games Finance Market has doubled in capacity for 2017 and will be open to 60 games companies and 60 investors. The successful inaugural event created new business worth over £10m, cementing London's reputation as a centre of excellence for the global games industry.
Confirmed publishers, investors and financiers already on board include Sega, All 4 Games, Miniclip, Headgear, Coutts, Curve Digital, Authentic Media and Green Man Gaming, with more to be announced soon.
The Games Finance Market is open to games companies who are seeking to pitch projects to international financiers and potential business partners, and the companies that want to fund those projects.
