The Global Gaming Investor Map

global gaming investor map shows investments in gaming companies by investors all around the world

While I was working on raising a round for SOOMLA I came across a post on local media that showed a map of all the Israeli angel investors. This map was based on a croudsourced spreadsheet that was first initiated by Eden Schochat at Aleph.vc. I thought that it would be really nice if someone made a resource like that for gaming investors.

Why did I create the Global Gaming Investor Map

Gaming investment is a polarizing topic – some investors love gaming and some hate it. There are very few investors that are in between. From this reason, just knowing what investors invest in gaming is super valuable. Beyond that, investors rely on their network for intros so knowing the investments of each investor allows gettting an intro through a portfolio company which is considered a strong intro. The map also shows what investors often invest together and pinpoint hubs of connections that could be key people to know.

the gaming investor map itself contains so much information that it can't be presented as an image and requires a special tool to be useful

A few notes about the map

The map above contains a lot of investors, venture firms, partners, companies and executives but it’s not complete. Surely I missed a many data points. I also know it has duplicates so it’s not perfect. The colors have the following meaning:

  • Green – VC that invests in gaming
  • Blue – Games company
  • Grey – Everything else which is mostly Executives, Partners, Angels and non-gaming companies.

To view the map you need to use mindmup.com or the mobile app.

Note that the map is given with full edit permissions – please don’t use it in ways that will make me regret it. Respect others and help build this resource futher.
