From indie game studios to industry giants: Sweden always has been a videogame country. Studios like DICE (Battlefield), Mojang (Minecraft) and Dennaton (Hotline Miami) marked the Swedish history of gaming with their successes. You can be the next Swedish Success Story!
Learn about how an investment looks like within the games industry. What are the risks and benefits? What does an investor think when investing in a game studio? And how does the perspective look from the company seeking investment? Grab some advice from top actors of the Swedish games industry!
We will discuss these questions during an in-person Lunch Debate at Minc. This event will be split between a presentation and a Q&A session with our guests.
Jenny Strömberg, coach at Minc, chairwoman of the board at Studybee and advisor at Ecombooster will exchange with Robin Hjelte, studio manager at Frictional Games about investment and various advice for aspiring game studios. You will have the opportunity to learn about the mindset of each party, from the perspective of an investor and from that of a developer!
Robin has over 10 years experience in the games industry in roles spanning leadership, production, creative direction and game design in both indie and AAA. It all began when he and a group of friends decided to start their own studio when they studied Media Technology: Digital Games at Blekinge Institute of Technology. Their first larger game title was AER Memories of Old, and in the process of developing the game, they decided to seek venture capital to finance the final development and launch.
Jenny has an entrepreneurial background and after working with international sales she co-founded a SaaS-company in 2009. In 2016 she joined Almi Invest as an Investment manager and that’s where she met Robin. Nowadays she’s a coach at Minc, is chairwoman of the board at Studybee and is working closely with the CEO of Ecombooster to scale the company.
Listen to Robin and Jenny sharing their perspectives of investments in gaming companies. Robin is well connected in the gaming world, both locally and internationally. Don’t miss this opportunity to listen to his experience!
