Investment Conference

On Oct. 5, 2018, SIEGE will be hosting its 8th consecutive annual Investment Conference and offer up to ten established and startup companies that are developing video games or businesses otherwise associated with 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 startup (according to our criteria) 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. Thanks to our generous sponsors, and especially our lead sponsor, Tripwire Interactive, attending the investment conference is free and open to the public.

Livesight – Nicholas Middlebrooks and Alex Hornecker
