28 June 2016
(PRESS RELEASE) -- EiG's alumni include successful companies such as Element Wave, Fresh8 Gaming, Colossus Bets and FSB Tech who have benefited from the exposure to the event's high-level and decision-making attendees, all potential partners or investors.
EiG Start-Up LaunchPad, organized in partnership with GamCrowd, is the longest running and most established amongst the startup initiatives run at Clarion's Gaming events, and since 2009 has been providing startups with an economical opportunity to debut their businesses to a very senior iGaming audience.
Each year, five startups are selected in a three-month submission process, to present their innovative approaches to the EiG audience, with a panel of investors, that includes well-known names such as Mark Blandford and Evan Hoff, leading a Q&A and providing the final commentary. The winner is selected in a live vote, usually in line with investors' vote. This year's LaunchPad will take place on Thursday, Oct. 20 in Berlin, EiG's host city for the last three years and an important start-up hub in Europe.
Shortlisted startups are additionally offered complimentary space on the exhibition floor, within its startup zone, thus benefiting from tailored marketing and startup exposure.
"Over the last couple of years the industry has truly embraced startups and recognized their crucial role in the innovation value chain. The LaunchPad has played an important role in highlighting the importance of startups and bringing them closer to the industry. I look forward to seeing who will win in 2016 in Berlin," commented GamCrowd's Chris North.
Excellence in iGaming takes place on Oct. 18-20, 2016 in Arena Berlin. If you're a startup and interested in applying for the LaunchPad, you are invited to visit the EiG website where you can find out more about the submission process.
