This panel consists of seed-stage-focused game investors discussing and sharing their investment strategy, i.e. what they look for when investing in companies at an early stage and how they support companies during and after investment. The investors will also share the areas/genres they're currently focused, and the most recent trends both globally and in their individual markets.


The attendees of the panel will better understand what seed-stage game investors are, what they are looking for, and how they see the game market now. If attendees are raising money, they can ask questions to the panel and leave better prepared for their next investment meeting.
