The global iGaming Summit Expo (GIGse) are welcoming back their innovative start-up competition for the 2014 GIGse event due to be held in San Francisco in July.

GIGse to Host 3rd Start-Up LaunchPad ContestAre you considering venturing into the world of gaming or gambling and don’t know how the hell you are going to get to where you want to go?

Then why not try the GIGse Start-up LaunchPad contest?

The Global iGaming Summit and Expo (GIGse) is due to hit San Francisco July 14-16, and for the third consecutive year GIGse will stage the innovative start-up competition that saw last year’s winners ISI Labs sign deals with Microgame and Cladstone, as well as finding a listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

It will be nerve wracking but quite positively worth it as five fortunate start-up companies will get the opportunity to make their pitch in front of a panel of sought out investors and GIGse’s 700 strong crowd.

Start-ups who are willing to throw their hat into the ring have to make sure that they follow eight rules – but can break at least two of them.

Applicants must make sure that their business is beyond the ‘concept phase’, there must be a product to showcase, your company must be in the early stages of development, it is preferable if you don’t already have financial backing, you are not an established company trying to sell a new product, you are completely committed, have a solid core team of between 2-10 people, have plans to take your business to the next level and beyond, and be able to speak English.

If you tick all of those boxes and are not afraid of making a show of yourself in front of over 700 people then head to the GIGse.com website and enroll.

Winners receive a small exhibition space at either GIGse 2014 or 2015.

The deadline for submissions in May 30.
