Live pitching session

The“Entrepreneurship in Games” track of the conference will end with a unique opportunity for the audience to watch the best of a bunch of entrepreneurs, pitching their business propositions at a panel of entrepreneurs and financiers. The session will be chaired by Richard Phillips of Manchester Business School, and the award for the 10k€ prize will be made at the delegates dinner on Wednesday 28 April.“It takes particular courage to stand in front of your peers and give away a potentially good idea, but any entrepreneur worth his or her salt would want a chance to bring in money, however much it is. I wish them luck and I hope they may well be our first customers at Games Capital” says Fred Hasson, CEO of newly formed Games Capital Ltd and producer for the Entrtepreneurship track.
