Voting has opened at www.GamCrowd.com/PitchICE to determine the inaugural winner of Pitch ICE. Presented by GamCrowd and Clarion Events, the competition saw start-ups showcase their ideas in front of attendees during 15-minute slots at ICE 2015.
Videos of the pitches have been published and the concept which attracts the most votes before the deadline on Friday, February 20, will gain entry to the GamCrowd Incubator service. The program is designed to help start-ups secure investment, fill skills and expertise gaps, and provide valuable introductions to operators in the industry for testing and distribution.
GamCrowd CEO Chris North said: “From journalists to investors to suppliers to operators, the feedback from Pitch ICE has been extremely positive. It has given priceless exposure across the industry to everyone who took part. The competition demonstrated that our sector is a hotbed of fantastic ideas – the level of innovation guarantees that deciding on the Pitch ICE proposition with the greatest potential is going to be tough.”
Pitch ICE entries cover a wide range of real-money and social gambling products across verticals including sports betting, casino, poker and lottery.
“Every idea in Pitch ICE is a strong one and whoever is crowned winner will be deserving of the prize,” Wendy Collins of Sporting Savvy said. “No matter what happens, Pitch ICE has been an opportunity like no other for our business. On the back of the show, we have already had lots of interest from potential partners and hope to use this platform to kick-start our activities at Sporting Savvy.”
