Eight of these startups will then be selected to make their pitch in which they are given three minutes to present their projects and then conduct a Q & A session with the audience and potential investors from such firms as Klein Group, XLMedia, and Partis Solutions.

Between 2 PM and 6 PM, doors will be open to all ICT, Law, Accountancy, and other graduates and student organizations that are interested in being recruited by the biggest names in the iGaming industry.
