“Developing an idea, let alone a video game, costs a fortune. That is something CEO Thomas Krogh-Jacobsen from the game developer Pixel Pandemic knows a lot about; knowledge that he has chosen to share in the radio show De 6 Hatte on the national Danish talk radio Radio24syv – a radio show that focuses on entrepreneurs each week.
“Venture Capitalists often conceive of the gaming industry as a high risk investment. But the industry is still young and evolving so fast that a lot of investors have not invested in games before and find it difficult seeing what does and do not work in a games project,” Thomas Krogh-Jacobsen states on the show.
In the studio he is joined by two investment fund experts: Ulla Brockenhuus-Schack from Seed Capital and Nikolaj Nyholm from Sunstone Capital. Together with Tine Thygesen from Founders House, an invitation-only workspace for ambitious technology start-ups and experienced tech entrepreneurs, they analyze how to best approach investment funds and how to streamline a project and make it interesting as an investment opportunity.
It is a rare opportunity to get a glance at what happens behind the investment funds’ closed doors and the decisions leading to either the rejection or approval of a games project. The radio show is found here.”
