OPPORTUNITY FOR ENTREPRENEURS IN INTERACTIVE MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT TO PRESENT BUSINESS PLANS TO INVESTORS
ROB HASSETT AND ANDREW GREENBERG
This notice is for creative entrepreneurs, who are trying to raise funds to start or grow businesses that are in interactive media or entertainment. If you are such a person, you may want to consider applying to be a presenter at the seventh (7th) consecutive annual Investment Day at Siege to be held on Friday, October 6. It is part of the annual five (5) day SIEGE Conference (A/K/A the Southern Interactive Entertainment and Game Expo). The 11th consecutive annual SIEGE Conference will be held from Tuesday, October 3 until Sunday, October 8. Last year we had eight teams pitch to forty (40) investors and other people with connections to funding sources. This year we are planning to increase the number of panelists/ judges to 50. The event is free to all participants. There is likely to be increased interest from investors in this year’s presenters because it has become much easier for developers of interactive media to qualify for tax credits offered by the State of Georgia which can total to as much as 30% of expenditures to develop the product. For a list of prior presenters and panelists and instructions on how to file an application to be a presenter, go to www.siegcon.net/investment-conference/.
