50 financiers, 150 companies expected for Game Connection Invest Initiative

Lyon-based investment event taking applications until Oct 13

The Game Connection Invest Initiative 2010 has been announced, as part of the Lyon-based Game Connection Europe in November.

The event will play host to over 150 companies, pitching to an expected 50+ investors and venture capitalists.

20 of the firms present will be 'pre-selected', enjoying extra promotional clout on the show floor.

Said Game Connection MD Pierre Carde, "In a shifting market, companies are today reconsidering their approach toward financing, especially when it comes to online game services.

"Investors are very keen on supporting high potential companies considering the recent acquisition trend, especially in social gaming, but not only. The game industry has never been as attractive as today for venture capitalists."

Applications for exhibitor spaces at the event are now open, and run until October 13. The Game Connection Invest Committee will approve those ventures it considers to have the most growth potential.

Game Connection Invest Initiative runs from November 15 to 18.
