Call for Applications: Representing Games Connections Program 2023
After the successful premiere in 2022, the Representing Games Connections Program sponsored by Games/Bavaria is going into the second round. Are you looking for funding, an investor, a publisher, marketing or other business partnerships? Together with Representing Games by MeetToMatch, we are relaunching the online program that will connect you with relevant stakeholders to accelerate your business in 2023 and beyond. Submit your application by November 1 to secure your spot in the program – the kick-off is scheduled for mid-November.
What is Representing Games?
Representing Games is the agency label from our partners at MeetToMatch that helps studios accelerate their business. All participating game developers will receive feedback on their pitch material and on their game, an intro to Representing Games, one-on-one sessions, and matchmaking with a minimum of five quality connections on average to key people in the international games industry – like investors or publishers. A connection means Representing Games will set up an introduction with a stakeholder that is interested to learn more directly from you, to set up a meeting with.
Representing Games has a track record in such acceleration programs with several governments, and also represent multiple international game studios.
Fill in the application form until November 1, 23:59 GMT+1 to secure your spot. You will need your pitch deck (a concept version is perfectly fine as you will be working on that during the program!) and provide some information about you and your game.
Who can participate?
Everyone working on a game with their office (or address for solo devs) located in Bavaria is eligible to participate – with the exception of full-time students. If you are not sure whether you can take part, send us an email at [email protected]. You can participate for free.
You should have a vertical slice, a demo or a prototype of your game – and a (concept) pitch deck. PC and console games are most convenient to work with in today’s market. We accept mobile and XR games as well but will be more selective with those. Especially if your business model is F2P, your pitch deck should provide additional information about your monetization strategy.
What is expected of me?
You will only achieve your goal of meeting on average at least five interested stakeholders from the games industry if you follow the steps of the Representing Games program. This means that you participate in the meetings, work on your materials as instructed, respond to emails in a timely manner, and fill in surveys to make sure the program fits your needs. Please note that the program will run in English.
You don’t need to have a perfect pitch deck or online presence yet – but you need to be willing to work on all that. Are you ready for this challenge? Apply now and accelerate your business.
