Last week Games London brought a delegation of West Coast games investors to the UK as part of its ongoing work to forge new business relationships between talented London developers and US investors looking for the next global gaming hit.
From 11–15 July, Execs from CrossCut Ventures, Upfront Ventures, The Venture Reality Fund and Zynga, Inc. were taken on an intensive business trip to showcase the city’s creative talent, its rich, versatile skills base and demonstrate how the UK’s generous creative sector tax reliefs can be put to good use.
The execs visited London studios including Improbable Worlds, Lift, Mind Candy, Space Ape, Third Floor and ustwo. They also listened to pitches from UK developers, received talks from tax and legal experts and were taken on a trip to Brighton’s Develop Conference and the Develop Awards.
We’d like to say an enormous thank you to our brilliant delegates, and to all of the studios who welcomed us into their offices, showed us their tech, pitched to us and generally did a fantastic job of helping us promote London and the UK as a world-leading destination for games investment. THANK YOU!
