What is Media Deals?

Media Deals is a pan-European investor network gathering business angels and early-stage venture capital funds focusing on Creative Industries and digital media.

Since its creation in 2008, Media Deals has been promoting and encouraging early-stage equity investment in high-growth startup companies in the following fields/sectors:

  •  Audiovisual (film, TV, videogames, music and distribution platforms)
  •  Digital Tools/Services for creative sectors

  •  Cutting-edge media technologies

Today, the Media Deals network comprises 60+ investors from a range of European countries and with differing investment criteria, yet all sharing an interest to invest in media/tech companies in Europe. Within our network these financiers, despite their different strategies and risk profiles, can meet and develop common actions to facilitate cross-border investments in the sector.
