Startup Funding: Indie Options, Approaches and Realities

Jason Della Rocca  |  Co-Founder, Execution Labs


Location: Congress Saal 2

Format: Lecture
Track: Business, Marketing & Management

Just a few years ago, the only source of funding for game development was a publisher. Now that other sources of finance are entering the industry (e.g., venture capital, crowdfunding, grants, incubators), there are many more options and approaches available for indies to fund their projects and studios. This session will cover these options in detail, along with the best approach to take to raise funds given your current state. Furthermore, the pros and cons will be covered to ensure a much needed dose of reality.

Takeaway

Attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of the project/studio funding options that are available today and how best to approach the 'getting money' challenge.

Intended Audience

This session will be geared towards indies and startup studios exploring funding options, or who are in need of funding.
