The Edinburgh Interactive Festival, being held on August 9th and 10th at The Radisson Blu Hotel on the Royal Mile, will play host to a Dragon’s Den style event where people can pitch their videogame ideas.
Have you got a brilliant idea for a game or games business? Are you one pitch away from being financed? Care to be evaluated by real VC dragons from the interactive and media industries? Do you mind if the rest of us watch?
“Thare be Dragons” is the games industry’s answer to Dragons Den. Live at the Edinburgh Interactive Festival on the 9th of August we are looking for ambitious, smooth entrepreneurs to engage and beguile our Dragons. Ideas should look and feel like real ones. Each Dragon will have to allocate 100,000 fake pounds during the session. Is your proposition the one that will get the finance you ask for? It will be up to these guys…
