Investment and publishing specialists join PlayStack and Humble Bundle

More big names have signed up to meet and speak with indie developers at the Investment Summit at PAX East.

The US edition of our popular show (which has been running for 10 years in the UK) will now feature PlayStation, publisher Merge Games and crowdfunding giant Kickstarter.

They join Humble Bundle and PlayStack, who will be sharing expertise and meeting developers with the intention of uncovering the next hit indie game.

The Investment Summit @ PAX East takes place on March 28th in Boston - next door to PAX East. Tickets include access to PAX East for two days. You can buy tickets at the Early Bird price of $160 right now. Early bird tickets end this month.

Indie exhibitors at PAX East can receive a limited number of free tickets to the event, but they're available on a first-come, first-served basis. Exhibitors should contact to request a free ticket.

The Investment Summit is a day-long event designed to help indie developers get their games funded. The event begins with a series of talks from leading games publishers and investors, followed by a networking lunch and then in the afternoon, ticket holders will be given the chance to enter a meeting system - this meeting system will feature a series of 15-minute one-to-one pitching sessions between game creators and publishers/investors (note: meetings are at the discretion of the investors and publishers).

Further partners and attending companies will be announced in the coming days.

Sponsorship packages are available. For more details, contact

Tickets to the event includes entry to the Summit, the networking lunch, access to the meeting system, plus entry to PAX East itself for both Thursday and Friday.

The UK Investment Summit attracted 300 attendees at EGX last year, with nearly 500 meetings between game developers and investors/publishers. It featured attendees such as Sony, Nintendo, Xbox, Amazon, Humble Bundle, Take-Two, EA, Sega, Jagex, Team17 and lots more.
