In a statement Chris North explains…
ICE challenges conventional thinking and wisdom, while offering the chance to discover new opportunities for businesses and individuals, which also neatly sums up what GamCrowd aims to achieve. The betting and gaming industry start-up community is a burgeoning one and we hope that our partnership with Clarion Events – and in particular the creation of PITCH ICE – will help nurture innovation and entrepreneurship to even higher levels.”
During the exhibition, ICE 2015 (3rd -5th Feb) entrepreneurs will be shortlisted before the actual event and will be given 15 minutes to sell their business or concept on the show floor. The 15 minute slots will be filmed and then placed online for a public vote, this process will last for two weeks after ICE 2015 and the winner from each category will be given access to CamCrowd’s incubator skills and expertise in terms of PR support.
The two categories up for grabs are…
· Companies looking for funding
· Companies that just want to promote their start-up to the industry
There is no entry charge and also no requirement to be raising money on GamCrowd.
There will also be workshops and seminars hosted by GamCrowd covering the start-up process from funding through to licensing, one-to-one mentoring sessions and guided tours of the entire exhibition that will give an insider’s guide to the expo.
Applicants are required to produce a short two-minute pitch video covering who you are, what your idea is and what you are looking for from the ICE event, Investors or potential partners.
