New MGF Pitching Session 'The Venture Den' Brings Together A Panel Of Investors With A Total of US$131M Ready To Invest In Mobile Games


Hong Kong, March 23, 2016 / - MGF Asia, taking place April 12th-13th at the 5-star Mira Hotel, will be launching the first ever 'The Venture Den', a no nonsense pitching session where the brightest and best independent and smaller studios will be presenting before a panel of world class investors and publishers with a total of at least $131M ready to invest, and who will be looking to partner with the most promising indie developers out there.

The pitches will take part in front of a live audience, and form an integral element of the MGF agenda on the 12th April. Each studio has 5 minutes to impress the world-class panel of judges, before the next studio has a shot at pitching for their next round of funding or crucial partnership.

Confirmed Venture Den investor and publisher panellists include representatives from Animoca Brands, 8 Elements, Linekong, Firestartr, Playlab, Perfect World, NetEase, Qeon Interative, Rolocule Games and Aid Partners.

Participants will also be judged by Shelley LK, Managing Partner, IPC Ventures, giving them the opportunity to be in the running to win mobile gaming's most exciting new competition, Gaming Top Talent. This is a global competition open to developers based anywhere in the world with a total prize value of over $1M, including capital investment and exclusive publishing deals, up for grabs. Be sure to bring your A-Game!

Commenting on MGF Asia and the upcoming competition, Shelley LK said "Asia has been one of the highest growing markets in mobile gaming history. Yet it's also a highly fragmented market and there is a lot of 'noise' in the talent pool. MGF is one of the premium industry events, drawing together the top, senior and serious professionals in the mobile gaming space, including locals from the region and also international expats. There are great synergies between 'The Venture Den' taking place at MGF Asia and our global online initiative Gaming Top Talent, and we are excited to have a close collaboration this year and to shape up the industry together."
