igaming-ent-160.pngNovember 28, 2016 – London, UK (Press Release): The iGaming Entrepreneurs Conference (www.iGamingEntrepreneurs.com) is back for 2016 with a new format, and the industry’s first mentoring package. The one-day event will take place at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, on the 8th of December.

The conference will begin with pitch coach Benjamin Ball offering his industry-leading insights to entrepreneurs on how to pitch your project to potential investors. Delegates will then hear about the challenges for the ‘lean startup’ in the iGaming market, followed by a panel of entrepreneurs at various stages of their company life-cycles discussing the ever-changing needs of entrepreneurs as their companies grow. The morning sessions will then conclude with Unibet’s Head of Innovation discussing partnerships with established players in the industry as an increasingly popular alternative to traditional startup investment.

The afternoon begins with a panel of five major investors in iGaming, who will discuss their investment criteria, tell the audience what they look for in an investment and who will take questions from the entrepreneurs in the room.

Finally, the ‘Brightest Minds’ showcase will cap off the event, seeing the entrepreneurs pitch their ideas in a 60-second video to the panel of mentors and investors who will then choose one project as the winner of the showcase and the recipient of the mentoring package, which includes mentoring from Mark Blandford, Melissa Blau and Boston.co.im; Professional Services from accountants BDO and expert iGaming law firm Harris Hagan; and professional services from NMi, Vegas Kings and Lyceum Media.

“After the success of the 2015 event we wanted to focus on not only bringing investment to iGaming entrepreneurs, but also high level content and a mentor programme that can help drive their business forward. The sessions throughout the day are focused on helping entrepreneurs present and generate investment but are topped off with a Brightest Minds showcase where the entrepreneurs can compete for a mentorship package worth tens of thousands of pounds that will propel their business forward,” commented Michael Caselli, Editor-in-Chief of iGaming Business.”

The event is free to attend for qualified investors in iGaming, and iGaming investors not in attendance can register to receive the ‘Opportunities in iGaming’ catalogue, featuring the executive summaries of the attending entrepreneurial projects.
