Within the past decade, gaming has joined the ranks of becoming a mainstream conversation. Once viewed as solely for geeks, gaming is now incredibly widespread, and it is an enthusiastic part of our culture. Gaming has become an active, multi-directional activity, and esports, streaming, audience participation, chats/communication, and game viewership will lead to immediate further rewards in gaming investing in the next five years. Game engines are being used to create the latest content, including the most successful TV shows and movies. As such, I’m thrilled to announce our new fund that is 100% focused on the gaming industry.Gregory Milken, a Managing Partner at March Capital
Indicative of the rise of interest in gaming is that mobile gaming expenditures are expected to hit $77B this year, which represents a 13.3% YOY increase. Because of this, the mobile gaming audience alone is expected to hit 2.6B people this year.
Prior March Capital investments include Genvid Technologies and Immortals Gaming Club. Nifty Games and Knock Knock are amongst the investments that have been made by the new entity, March Gaming. March Gaming expects to lead approximately 12-15 investments in gaming and provide capital, connections and guidance to entrepreneurs in this arena.
While March Capital has long invested in gaming, we realized that we had a subset of investors and constituents who were very interested in gaming. We decided to dedicate a fund just for gaming investments and use our unique expertise and evaluation capabilities to fully capitalize on this opportunity. As a life-long gamer, I cannot wait to continue to identify, invest in, and advise those like-minded entrepreneurs who are at the forefront of game platform creation and content development.Gregory Milken, a Managing Partner at March Capital
