Our friends at Kemp Little have tipped me off to an event they’re running this week looking at the investment appetite for companies involved in digital gaming.
Kemp Little invites executives from media companies, investors, entrepreneurs working in the digital publishing and games space and journalists to join them at Games Gone Wild! on 17 November, where Nicholas Lovell from Gamesbrief will be posing the question: All bark and no bite: are investors really interested in games?
The demise of Realtime Worlds may have spooked investors, but was enthusiasm for the games industry in Europe waning even before that? Many investors have looked at the games industry closely, but few have made substantial investments in 2010. The panel of luminaries on the night will discuss whether investors are still interested in games and if so, what are the areas that are still attracting investment? The panel of leading commentators and industry experts includes Ben Holmes from Index Ventures, Thor Gunnarsson from CCP Games, Alexis Bonte from eRepublik and Andy Moseby from Kemp Little.
The event is taking place on 17 November at Patch, a chic cocktail bar near St. Paul's, on the lower ground floor from 6.00pm (panel discussion from 7.00pm – 8.00pm). As always, Wi-Fi is available for those who want to tweet the latest gossip.
The event is organised by Kemp Little - the UK's leading law firm for technology, digital media and games companies (and Mobile Monday London’s legal advisors) (with thanks as always to Michael Acton Smith of Moshi Monsters).
Space is limited, so the event is listed as invite only, but if you register your interest via this link here (or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) and tell them that Mobile Monday London sent you, Kemp little will try their best to squeeze you in.
