SIEGE 2019 Presenters
CALL FOR APPLICANTS TO PRESENT AT THE 2019 SIEGE INVESTMENT CONFERENCE
This year the SIEGE INVESTMENT CONFERENCE will be held on Monday, October 14, 2019 (Columbus Day) at the KSU CENTER at 3333 Busby Dr. NW, Kennesaw, GA 30144. The event will start at 9:30 and end on or before 3:00 pm.
We will have up to eight teams of entrepreneurs whose businesses are in or support the entertainment or educational industries, including, but not limited to, video games and esports productions, make pitches for investment. There is no charge to be a presenter.
There will be two categories of winners:
- Best Startup. This company will have not received investments of more than $15,000. Investments include loans and funds invested by founders. Also, the company shall not have had annual revenue from sales exceeding $15,000.
- Overall Winner.
The teams will prepare a presentation for an audience of 40-50 judges. Among the judges will be an advisory panel. All judges will vote for the Overall Winner. The advisory panel will select the Best Startup and decide the Overall Winner if no team receives a majority vote in this category. The Best Startup will receive a cash prize
Prior to the event, the teams will receive contact information of certain judges who have agreed to serve as mentors. The mentors will advise the presenters and help prepare the teams for their presentation and to facilitate their meeting with people at our event that may be interested in investing or otherwise able to help them.
Each team will have 15 minutes to pitch for funding which will include a minimum of five minutes of answering questions.
Following the presentations, the teams will be seated in breakout groups with various judges for further discussion and questions. Lunch will be provided to the teams and judges during this time.
When we see an application from a team that we believe has the complete package, i.e. outstanding concept, powerful team and terrific speakers, we may select them early. Among other things, this enables presenters who are accepted earlier to benefit more from their mentors. Although there is no official deadline for applications, we accept submissions on a first-come, first-served basis.
