Hi Hadi, we do not make any upfront investment. We may decide to invest at a later point, but we do not take equity upfront.Yes there is a Demo Day at the end. We will be working with the local VC/Angel community and will bring them to the Demo Day. The London Accelerator is not just for Microsoft related businesses. Our Accelerator is seeking gaming as well as tech companies, due to our strong relationship with the Microsoft Games Studios in the UK as well as the Xbox team. This is unique and a great benefit to gaming studios who may wish to apply. I hope that helps.
