Games Capital Summit returns this May
The deadline to join the Games Capital Summit at NG23 Spring is midnight CEST on Friday, 28 April. Apply now!
The Games Capital Summit returns to Nordic Game 2023 – a rare opportunity for venture-ready companies to connect directly with VCs actively investing and seeking opportunities in the games sector. The Games Capital Summit takes a hands-on approach, with a focus on mentoring.
Games Capital Summit this May
Hosted by games funding expert Jason Della Rocca, the Games Capital Summit enables entrepreneurs to pitch their studio and connect with potential investors.
Confirmed investors (updated 7 April with more to come) include:
- Behold Ventures
- BitKraft Ventures
- Galaxy Interactive
- GameTech Ventures
- Hiro Capital
- London Venture Partners
- Makers Fund
- Node Ventures
- Octopus Ventures
- Sisu Game Ventures
- SNÖ Ventures
- The Games Fund
The Games Capital Summit focuses on equity funding, which means that the investors are interested in funding companies directly in exchange for shares in your business. This event is NOT the right venue for those mainly seeking project funding or that need a game publisher. Alternatives for project financing and meeting publishers are the Developer Showcase and MeetToMatch during NG23 Spring.
Format and logistics
The Games Capital Summit takes place on Tuesday, 23 May as a day-zero activity of Nordic Game 2023 (NG23 Spring, 23-26 May). The action starts during lunch, with the afternoon full of pitches, feedback and mentoring sessions, and closing with a VIP cocktail mixer, joining up with the Nordic Game executive event participants.
Each company selected to participate will pitch in front of the room of investors, receiving questions and feedback. Once each batch of companies have pitched, they will be paired up with different investors for round-robin style 20-minute meeting/mentoring sessions.
Note: All Games Capital Summit activities are on an invite-only basis – details below.
Eligibility and submissions
Entrepreneurs seeking funding for their company based on an opportunity in the game sector (i.e. game, tech, service, platform, etc.) are welcome to apply to the Games Capital Summit at NG23 Spring via this online application form. The deadline is midnight CEST on Friday, 28 April, so apply now!
You need to be logged into your Google account to upload the necessary files, and you will also be our sole contact at your company for this event.
Note: There is no cost to apply. Submissions are filtered and prioritised based on the awesomeness of the opportunity and suitability for venture funding. Only those companies selected are invited to pitch and participate in the Games Capital Summit. Only 12 companies will be selected to participate.
Selected companies are also given two complimentary passes to the Nordic Game 2023 (NG23 Spring) conference. Extras like MeetToMatch and Discovery Showcase upgrades are purchased separately.
