Last week saw the return of Games London Pitch Bootcamp, a unique two-day training programme for startup games companies who are hoping to access finance and publishing deals.
Pitch Bootcamp features in-depth talks and expert panels discussing the types of finance available and how best to impress investors, as well as workshops on delivering the perfect pitch with confidence. The games companies also have the opportunity to develop their pitch in breakout sessions with one-to-one mentoring from industry experts.
The delegates spent two days building a five minute pitch with the help of communications coach Jon Torrens and games industry experts including Nick Button-Brown (Sensible Object), Shahid Ahmad (Ultimatum Games), David Gardner (LVP) and Andy Payne (The Producers). At the end of the second day they all delivered their polished pitch with instant feedback from the experts.
Bootcamp graduates will be able to deliver their pitches to over 50 investors and publishers at this year’s Games Finance Market, which returns on 11 and 12 April during London Games Festival 2018. Applications for the Market close in February.
Games London has helped train over 40 SMEs in finance and pitching since 2016.
