GiGse Launchpad invites startups from Latin America

16 March 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The 2018 edition of GiGse Launchpad, the competition which puts enterprising startups in front of investor judges and senior gaming executives from both the online and offline sectors, promises to be one of the most international on record. Following GiGse's co-location with Juegos Miami at The Biltmore, Miami (31 May - 1 June 2018), the scope of Launchpad will include Latin and South American facing startups aiming to follow in the footsteps of previous winners which include BlueBat Games, NumberFire and nQube, which triumphed in 2017.

Clarion Gaming's Head of Content, Ewa Bakun, who is responsible for what is a key feature of the GiGse experience, said, "The GiGse Launchpad has been providing startups with an elevated position to enter the North American gaming market, while allowing gambling executives and casinos to experience the latest trends and preserve a foothold in a wider consumer entertainment offering. GiGse's co-location with Juegos Miami means startups from Latin and South America will also be participating, making for one of the most international and compelling Launchpad competitions yet."

She added, "Getting exposure and obtaining funding is difficult for many organizations, but even more so for startups who want to be in the gambling space. Launchpad is a great way for new companies to promote their innovations and to get some traction. GiGse, with its overwhelmingly C-Level delegate profile, is an ideal place to get noticed by investors and business partners alike. Ideally, we're looking for companies who are beyond the 'concept phase' but the stand-out credentials remain great ideas, great energy and the great dedication that's required to transform ideas into reality."

Featuring up to five startups selected to pitch in front of investor judges and an audience of influential gaming executives, the GiGse Launchpad is accepting submissions through to Friday, 27 April 2018. The selected finalists will receive an exhibition space in the Start-Up Zone in the GiGse Exhibition area, and two complimentary delegate passes. The GiGse Launchpad winner will receive a free exhibition booth at the 2019 show.
