The Games Capital Summit at Nordic Game 2018 is 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 will take a hands-on approach, with a focus on mentoring.

• Are Mack Growen, London Venture Partners (UK)

Format and logistics
The Games Capital Summit will take place on Tuesday 22 May, as a day-zero activity of Nordic Game 2018 (23-25 May). The action will start during lunch, then the whole afternoon will run pitches, feedback and mentoring sessions, closing with a VIP cocktail, joining up with the Nordic Game Exec event participants.
Each company selected to participate will pitch in front of the panel of investors, receiving questions and feedback. Once all companies have pitched, they will be paired up with different investors for round-robin style 30-minute meeting/mentoring sessions.
• 12:00-13:30 – Group lunch and opening keynote
• 13:00-18:00 – Pitching, feedback and mentoring sessions
• 18:30-20:00 – Exec VIP cocktail and buffet mingle
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 NG18 via this form here.
The deadline for submissions is midnight Friday, 20 April.
Note: This summit is focused on VENTURE funding, which implies that the investors are interested in funding companies directly in exchange for equity. If you are mainly seeking project funding or need a publisher for your game, then this summit is NOT the right venue. Better to sign-up for MeetToMatch at NG18.
There is no cost to apply. Summit submissions will be filtered and prioritised based on the awesomeness of the opportunity and suitability for venture funding. Only those companies selected will be invited to pitch and participate in the Games Capital Summit.
Selected companies will be given two complementary basic passes to the Nordic Game 2018 conference. Extras like MeetToMatch access, Discovery Showcase tables, Gala Dinner tickets, etc. must be purchased separately.
For any questions or clarifications, you are welcome to contact Jason Della Rocca here.
