Phil Harrisonâ??s new VC firm to offer talk on Britainâ??s £2m game fund

A trade event focused on helping devs strike investment deals is fast approaching, with the deadline for early bird tickets just days away.

Games Invest 2010 takes place at the Eurogamer Expo on October 1st in London, and the deadline for a £35 early bird ticket ends Monday 6th September – after that the cost is £50

Games Invest 2010 is billed as an opportunity for small-to-medium-sized UK game companies in the UK to learn more about games investment, as well as network with investment firms that are also expected to attend.

Organised and sponsored by Screen Yorkshire and Game Republic, the event will see attendees from numerous corners of the financial sector – from Tenshi Ventures to Pembridge and 4iP

Meanwhile, London Venture Partners - the new game investment group formed by Phil Harrison, David Lau-Kee, David Gardner and Paul Heydon – will be in attendance. The firm will provide a talk on the new government-backed £2m fund for games prototypes.
