Investment Conference

On Oct. 5, 2018, SIEGE will be hosting its 7th consecutive annual Investment Conference and offer up to ten established and startup companies that are developing or offering video games and other forms of interactive media an opportunity to pitch to a panel of investors and industry veterans. All that pitch will also receive valuable feedback from the judges at the conference and be given the opportunity to receive additional free telephone consultation regarding legal, tax, and business matters.

The person or team that earns the “best pitch” by a start-up distinction as judged by our panel of investors and industry veterans will also receive a $1,000 cash prize. The top 3 will receive a free 1 to 2-hour lunch with 2 lawyers named to Best Lawyers in America. The members of the 8 to 10 teams who make pitches will receive free telephone consultation from leading experts regarding legal, tax and business matters. All that apply will be offered free mentoring and coaching.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, attending the investment conference is free and open to the public.

Want to Pitch Your Project?

Download and complete the One Page Investment Teaser. Then, submit to by September 2nd. Our program team will review and select the best submissions to participate.

Space is limited and decisions as to who will have an opportunity to pitch will be made as determined by the judges, but no teasers will be accepted after September 2, 2018. The accepted entrepreneurs do not need to pay to present at the Investment Conference and, as mentioned above, there is no charge to attend.
