The challenges of gaming startups

Despite the exceptional growth and transformative potential of the gaming industry, industry actors must stay alert to possible risks and specific challenges to flourish in this rapidly evolving landscape, especially when it comes to raising investments.

Quantifying player engagement

The rapid development and diverse player engagement metrics in the gaming industry can make decision-making complex, especially for prospective investors. Amid a multitude of startups, distinguishing those that truly excel in player retention and offer high potential becomes a difficult task.

Securing the right capital

In the constantly evolving fundraising landscape, it’s crucial to understand how to construct an engaging business narrative addressing the shifting investment realities, select the most appropriate funding sources, and devise a tailored gaming pitch deck that can convincingly market the business opportunity to potential investors.
