Hiro Capital invests in Metaverse technology founders and Game creators who are building the future.
We believe that Games and Games technologies will be at the heart of next generation human societies. For us, play is deep.
We are battle-scarred entrepreneurs who back next generation entrepreneurs. We have founded games and technology disruptors worth billions of dollars. We have led companies from startups to IPO in London and New York. We are gamers and sports nerds. We love games, stories, characters and deep tech.
Hiro Capital is so-named for the hero you become when you play a game or sport; the hero you are, when you found and build a company; and because we are inspired by Hiro Protagonist, lead character in Neil Stephenson’s Snowcrash, a hacker gamer human who codes the Metaverse and saves the world against the odds.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
Develop is the must-attend event for the games industry in the UK. It’s where we all come together and learn from each other. It’s the best way into the industry and it’s the best place to learn from your colleagues.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop is important – the networking is very important. And go to talks they’re inspiring and get your creative juices flowing, they can make you think and you’ll learn how other people do things.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
Develop:Brighton is especially unique - it’s by the seaside and there’s a lovely relaxed tone that goes with that.The talks are cool, the networking is cool and having the opportunity to catch up with people – that’s always the excitement for me!
There are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
