A Seed fund focused on investments in pre-seed and seed stage disruptive companies in the Online, Mobile, Social, and Cloud game sector primarily based in Europe. Founder-friendly. Hands-on. Immensely experienced. We’ve been there, seen it, done it, and we’re here to help you. LVP is a venture capital seed fund with a difference - we’re operating experts in the online, social, mobile and tablet games world, and we only ever invest in those sectors. That means we bring real experience and deep understanding. We speak the same language, share the same references, understand the same challenges - and we believe in the same vision. We know instinctively where the opportunities lie; where there are strengths to be harnessed and exposures to be covered. In fine-grain, no-hiding, straight-talking detail. We know when to bide time, when to iterate and when to go wide. And how. In short, we get games. Our team has been seed investors in game companies that have created approx $4 bn in value since November 2009 through full or partial exits between: Supercell - $3bn value, partial exit of $1.53 bn, 51% acquired by Softbank & Gungho, http://www.supercell.net/blog/view/one-step-closer NaturalMotion - $527m exit, acquired by Zynga, http://www.naturalmotion.com/zynga-to-acquire-leading-mobile-game-developer-naturalmotion/4437/ Playfish - $400m exit to EA, http://investor.ea.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=422828

Other investments by our team are: Omnidrone - http://omnidrone.net/ Boomlagoon - http://www.boomlagoon.com/ PlayJam - http://www.playjam.com/, Grey Area Labs - http://www.greyarealabs.com/, Unity Technologies - http://unity3d.com/ Playraven - http://www.playraven.com/ Brainbow - http://www.brainbowgames.com/ Applifier - http://www.applifier.com/
