GameOn

GameOn is an ambitious new programme, created to attract the best worldwide talent to Holland as well as supporting local Dutch game entrepreneurs – a unique programme investing money and resources from both the public and private sector where we will be there to support exciting new game companies from idea to exit.

The fund

We want to invest time, money and effort in ambitious people who want to build a company, execute a vision and drive exponential growth that delivers a return of investment for themselves and their investors. We would like to hear from teams that can show an understanding of cost-effective methods to scale quickly without the need for large investments in marketing.
The GameOn Partners and Advisory Board bring together 50 years of experience in the Games Industry and offer an extensive worldwide network. Our portfolio companies will benefit not only from our own personal knowledge and expertise but also from the unique ecosystem of vested interests that GameOn has built in The Netherlands

The GameOn Programme

It is important to stress that we are not here to provide funding only to game developers but central to GameOn´s strategy is to create an ecosystem that supports and helps the entrepreneur all the way from paper to product. We are here to build an unrivalled network of connected and vested interests that will also ensure a legacy is left behind in The Netherlands. Apart from all the governmental initiatives that will be aligned, GameOn has already secured the interest of some strategic Dutch partners in a number of important sectors including: accountancy, legal, education, IT, PR, distribution, facilities, housing, analytics and business strategy.
We are here to take an existing and thriving local sector to the next level. We will create a dynamic, internationally-focused Dutch games industry attracting leading talent and ideas from around the world to blend seamlessly with the best homegrown entrepreneurs. We offer startups seed funding, mentorship, industry contacts and access to a growing network of investors, service providers and innovators. As a company in our portfolio, you will enjoy synergies with other portfolio companies and opportunities to partner with key organizations already active in your target market. We pride ourselves on the intimate relationship we build with each and every investment we make.
