NORTHAMPTON, MA, March 9, 2020 – Digital Development Management (DDM), the world’s leading business and talent agency for video games and digital entertainment, announced that it has acquired the premier gaming industry investment data platform from leading business intelligence company Digi-Capital. The acquisition strengthens DDM’s role as the foremost business and consulting agency for video games and digital entertainment by augmenting its offerings in Finance Services and Industry Guidance as well as making DDM the go-to source for a wide range of industry data.

Through the platform, DDM will be able to offer reports in real-time to help guide investors or those seeking investment with valuation comparisons, industry trends and other invaluable data that is unique to the industry.
“Combining this investment information platform with our worldwide team of business experts and our extended family of consulting executives provides DDM with an unparalleled ability to put knowledge and data to work for our clients,” said Joe Minton, President of DDM. “The Digi-Capital team have built a powerful source of investment and industry data that will be a game-changer for how we can empower companies, from independent developers to sizeable funds, as they look to secure equitable deals,” indicated Peggy Twardowski, Business Information Director at DDM. Twardowski will maintain and manage the DDM Games Investment Review moving forward.
Digi-Capital Managing Director Tim Merel said, “Over a decade of experience went into turning our Game Industry Data into a powerful tool. As our company began to focus on other markets over the last 5 years, we were looking for the right steward for what we had built to help companies looking to do business in games. Having known Joe and the team for a long time, we are very happy that DDM are the folks to take things to the next level.”
The DDM Games Investment Review augments two of DDM’s core areas of business, Finance Services and Industry Guidance. The DDM Games Investment Review will provide DDM’s Finance Services clients with pertinent data such as investment trends in different game industry subsectors and/or geographic locales, making it the perfect tool for investors and those seeking investments alike.
The platform will also greatly augment DDM’s Industry Guidance division, which has consulted for companies worldwide, including Technicolor, NBCUniversal, Ericsson, Sony Pictures, FoxNext, Madison Wells Media and dozens of other firms. Whether entering the games space, acquiring companies, expanding on an existing initiative, securing licenses or undertaking a new endeavor, DDM’s worldwide industry guidance team will leverage the DDM Games Investment Review to build and execute a tailored strategy to help each client achieve their objectives.
