Pitch ICE Returns to ICE North America
In association with Sports Gaming Investment Fund (SGIF)
Calling all Gaming and Betting Start-ups
Continuing the tradition initiated with GiGse in 2011 and then picked up by ICE North America in 2019, we invite gaming and betting start-ups with an offering designed to address challenges and opportunities in the North American market, to submit their company for a chance to pitch in front of ICE North America’s high level audience.
Pitch ICE and its predecessor GiGse/ICE NA LaunchPad boasts a successful list of alumni, such as BlueBat Games (acquired by GreenTube), NumberFire (acquired by FanDuel) and LineLibrary (2019 winner whose victory was followed by investment by a member of the judging panel).
Submit your start-up for the opportunity to be one of the five finalists shortlisted to pitch on stage at ICE North America 2021 to potential investors and strategic partners, receive a free complimentary stand in the start-up zone and enjoy the PR exposure that comes with being involved.
However, there is more to Pitch ICE than that winning feeling. If you aren't successful in being shortlisted, applicants will still gain access to the Clarion Gaming Investors’ Network, built over the years of organizing start-up events. All start-ups’ profiles will be shared with the investors and start-up advisors – if your profile sparks interest, an introduction will follow.
Application deadline TBC (approx. two months before the 2021 event), but don’t delay – submissions are now open!
To apply, make sure you comply with the submission criteria and submit your application together with a 2-minute pitch video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a preview of the pitches, view the videos submitted by the shortlisted startups.
Congratulations, once again, to LineLibrary, winner of Pitch ICE 2019!
PITCH ICE RULES
In establishing the rules for applications for Pitch ICE, we ‘borrowed’ what we thought were the best ideas from a few tech associations and incubators.
For starters, it's okay to break the rules. That's what entrepreneurship is about. Just so long as you don't break more than two of them.
