We were extremely pleased with the unprecedented level of submissions from startups across the world who wanted to pitch their new ideas within the gaming industry at ICE London. The event is normally held over the first day and we had quite a job whittling down the submissions from nearly 50 to the best 23 for the opportunity to pitch to industry leaders for investment and business development. Each company had a 7 minute pitch slot, with a further Q&A from the audience. We ended up with a very impressive selection of startups across the breadth of gaming; from new odds comparison ideas, exciting ID and verification platforms, which have some serious RG implications and a whole new range of game ideas at varying levels of development.
We were also delighted that Melissa Blau agreed to moderate the first half of the day, Melissa has significant industry experience and is a seasoned moderator.
In addition to the Pitch itself, we also organised, in conjunction with Clarion Gaming, VIP drinks after the pitch. We invited numerous industry investors and disruptors to meet the startups and to find out more about their ideas.
Best Gambling (BG) have great synergy with Pitch ICE as we are a UK Operator who want to work with startups and scale-ups seeking quick access to the UK market at up to 50% lower cost and 3x faster than traditional routes. We are unique in our service offering, the startups get to keep full rights to their game and but can operate very quickly on our licence whilst we take care of all the regulatory compliance, hosting, testing and all aspects of the process to ensure full compliance. This can be significant for most startups in terms of cost and knowledge, our team of industry experts can help.
We would like to congratulate all the startups this year who were given the opportunity to pitch, we hope they found it a valuable experience, certainly the feedback on the day and afterwards has been very positive.
Finally, we would like to thank Clarion Gaming for putting on such an exceptional event, and investing time and effort to give new startups the opportunity to be seen and heard. They are one of the best marketing teams we have worked with and we look forward to building on this going forward.
