At Pocket Gamer Connects London 2016, Steel Media's Chris James led an experimental panel that had developers give pitches to investment experts in front of the conference audience.
The panel of investments consisted of:
- Shum Singh, Founder and MD, Agnitio Capital
- Keith Katz, Co-Founder & Business Chief, Execution Labs, and
- Kadri Ugand, Partner, GameFounders
A general theme of the various pitches was that the developers found it hard to describe their game, with Katz noting during the first pitch that "I didn't know what your game was until about halfway through."
The panel also felt that developers should focus more on simply talking about their game, rather than discussing the overall mobile market in great detail.
