I'm struggling finding investors or people interested to hear about StartUps related to Live Streaming in the video game industry.

DO you have any idea where can I search for them?

TY!

Raising money for your business is different from anything else that you will do. It is a process. It usually starts with having a well thought out business plan. Investors are willing to invest in a good business that has a chance of succeeding. That usually means that the management is good as well as the product. The fact that the business relates to live streaming in the video game industry is secondary. In most cases, you will have to spend some money to raise money. It depends upon how much you are trying to raise. It is way to complex to cover here. If you want more info. send me an e-mail.

The industry is less important than the stage of business, your legal structure, the equity split in your business, how many customers you have, how much traction you have, if you have a viable business model.


If you have an idea for a business related to startUps in livestreaming/video gaming then it's not investment that you need, it's validation that the idea will work. (read things around lean methodology and The Mom Test)


If you have a business in that sector that has proven basic validation tests then you need to network. turn up to local events, get your face seen about the place, tell people what you are doing, tell people you are looking for investment. Find if there are local accelerator programmes for start ups in your area and try to meet with the people who run it - they will have networks of investors and they will also be able to take your business model apart and tell you if it is investible (as they deal with many businesses per year)

How do you plan to give your investors a return?


Start with that and work backwards from where the money is in your industry to unlock the answer.

I happen to have developed a business plan for a streaming business, and I can honestly tell you it's all about the numbers. If you are looking for too much money on an untested idea with zero past success, any investor you find is likely to have a healthy amount of skepticism. Putting together the numbers was a very enlightening process, and it forces you to benchmark the target valuation of your company and put a plan to it. Bear in mind the valuation of your company is different from your revenue.


As to where to search, I'd start with a Google search for entrepreneur events in your area. Then you will meet people who have similar goals, can share their experience and maybe introduce you to some potential investors or events local investors attend.


Good luck - the basic premise is that if you need the money, the idea isn't worth it and if you don't need the money, people want to throw it at you for a piece of the profit.
