Shownotes

Video gaming is a huge market, but relatively niche within EIS. Steve Iles has spent his whole career working in and helping the video games industry and his current focus is at the intersection with funding.

We start off by talking about the history of video gaming and how it has shaped the industry as it stands today. This leads into the attractions of the different business models and what what does or doesn't make a good video game. Steve then talk about lower risk ways create games, trends, how investors should or shouldn't diligence video game companies and why gaming hasn’t taken off in EIS yet.
