Need funding? Get in line! Despite our desire to pitch and receive a big bag of cash so we can focus on development, fundraising is never so simple. This session will present a series of case studies on how various studios raised project and/or venture funding. Each case study will describe the timing and source of funding, and the traction that was required at each stage to close the deal. Further, a broader framework will be presented to better understand the difference between project vs company level funding, and the interplay between source of funding with timing. Patterns and insights will be provided that reflect the current climate for scoring the funds you need.


Participants will walk away with a clear understanding of how project and venture funding work, along with case studies that illustrate how studios and projects got funded in the real world.

Intended Audience

Studio founders/leaders, big or small, as well as aspiring entrepreneurs. This session is for anyone trying to crack the funding puzzle.
