Event description
Fellow Interintellect Nuno Leiria looks at a major market of winners: video games

About this Event

"Did you know that the video games market is larger than both the movie and music industries combined?

In this Interintellect Salon, we will explore the market dynamics that enabled video games to grow from a geeky teenager pastime to global phenomenon.

We'll do a deep dive into the intersection of games and money, including:

  • E-sports and what enables its 30% compound annual growth rate
  • In-game economies and their impact in the real economy (gold farming, money laundering, etc.)
  • The Publisher Wars (Steam 30% cut vs Epic Games 12% cut vs Discord 10% cut)
  • The business model and ethics of micro-transactions, loot boxes, and in-game cryptocurrencies
  • How games shifting from hit-driven revenue to SAAS enables a more predictable path to VC investment
  • How cloud gaming enables new non-player revenue streams such as gifting and betting

We hope you can join our discussion!"- Salon host Nuno Leiria
