Women in Games Investment & Entrepreneurship Forum

Why is this event important?

Research has revealed that start-ups led by men are four times more likely to secure funding and investment. We know that there are some brilliant women-led businesses in games and esports who deserve support, so our goal is to put them directly in touch with individuals and organisations who can help them to fulfil their potential.

Who can apply to take part in the Investment & Entrepreneurship Forum?

This event is to specifically support women, non-binary individuals, those who identify as women, and others in under-represented groups. 

How to get involved

If you are an indie developer or are heading up a start-up elsewhere in games or esports, you simply need to register for the event here https://hopin.com/events/the-women-in-games-investment-entrepreneurship-forum  and then complete the form here https://forms.gle/RNVsPfdBxFBUsazr5. The information you provide in the form is to enable us to match your requirements with those of the organisations and individuals who will be there to help you.

The deadline for registering for this event is Friday August 27th.

What happens next?

We will contact you the week before the Forum to provide you with your own itinerary of meetings with investors, publishers and advisors. You will also have the opportunity to attend the series of speaker sessions designed to help you with your journey towards investment.
