Venture Capitalists. Mergers & acquisitions. Crowdsourcing. Publishers.  So many options, and each coming with its own sets of pros, cons and headaches.  These days there really are a surplus of options, but which is the best course for your company?  Meet and chat with a panel of funding experts who have seen it all and put their money where their… gaming system of choice is.  In this candid conversation amongst peers, hear their war stories, near misses and catastrophic failures.  But don’t fear– there will be plenty of stories about a couple happy coincidences and big, million dollar pay-outs too!
