The Games Capital Summit returned online as a standalone event last week, once again giving venture-ready companies a valuable chance to connect directly with a selected group of invited VCs and strategic investors seeking opportunities in the games sector.
The Games Capital Summit takes a hands-on approach, with a focus on mentoring. Ten companies from an application pool of about 40 were selected; four were Nordic, three from the EU, two from non-EU Europe and one from Latin America.
“Yes, six of the ten companies were actually outside our mandate, but good to introduce to investors vetted by us,” says Timo Ylikangas from Games Capital Summit sponsor Nordic Game Ventures. “Good things should come to those who share.”
After a day of pitches, Q&A, 57 meetings and an impressive investor list, including Hiro Capital, LEGO Ventures, Nordisk Games and My.Game Venture Capital (MGVC).
The participant consensus was very positive about this standalone edition of the Games Capital Summit. Says Just Football CEO Kasper Ljungstrøm Skov: “I had a lot of great meetings and I was super impressed by the quality of the investors and their willingness to help. It felt like a very nice and supportive environment, and I got great value from it already.”
Invited investors seemed equally satisfied: “We really appreciated it and met some really great companies,” says Samuel Costello of Hiro Capital, backed up by Roman Goroshkin of MGVC: “We were happy to attend the event. Looking forward to the next future opportunities.”
