We wanted to invite all of you to our Game Monetization meetup, "Money Talks". It's going to be held in downtown San Francisco so you will need to be from the Bay Area to attend, though if there is sufficient demand then we will consider doing a live stream as well. I've pasted the description below, and let me know if you have any questions by replying below. Thanks!
Game Monetization is a hot topic and many developers are willing to learn. We've put together a great set of speakers to teach you how to make more money with your game. These speakers bring a wealth of game monetization experience from some of the most prestigious companies in the industry.
Roxanne Gibert is the Founder & CEO of Spyra Games, a company aiming to bring social strategy games to mobile devices. Her product and monetization strategy experience was cultivated at premier social game companies such as Zynga, Playdom, and Playfirst.
Roger Dickey's rapid rise began when he founded his own game company, which was bought by Zynga only 6 months after its launch. Within Zynga, Roger went on to head both Fishville and the incredibly popular (and profitable) Mafia Wars. Roger now serves as an advisor to multiple gaming startups.
Chris Griffin is the Founder & CEO of Betable, the only game monetization platform that lets you legally implement real-money gambling & betting into your games. His experience building gambling & betting products gives him unique insight into game mechanics & game monetization. Alongside Betable, Chris is an advisor to numerous venture-backed startups.
