Innovation Incubator at G2E

NEW for 2018 – G2E is launching Innovation Incubator at G2E. G2E is looking for the next big product or service in gaming and hospitality technology innovation. We invite students and start-ups alike for the opportunity to compete against other trailblazers and showcase your innovative product or service at G2E 2018 for a chance to win big! The submission deadline is now closed.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Participants are allowed to submit their pitches within the following criteria:
    1. Academic approach to gaming floor innovation (open only to students)
    2. Academic approach to hospitality and resort developments (open only to students)
    3. Start-up and/or academic approach to solve/streamline regulatory challenges
    4. Start-up and/or academic approach to create greater efficiencies for operators/suppliers
  2. Fill out the entry forms we’ve created.  There is one for academic institutions/students and another for start-up companies.  Be sure to fill out your application with as much information as possible.  There will also be a section at the bottom where you can upload any marketing collateral, photos or videos to explain your innovation.
  3. All submissions will be reviewed by the G2E Innovation Incubator Advisory Board and then the top 4 finalists will have 10 minutes to present live on the Special Events Stage at G2E on Thursday, October 11 to entrepreneur judges Daymond John and Cindy Eckert (Whitehead), where they will pick a Shark’s Choice winner. The audience will also be voting live to pick a Customer Choice Winner.
  4. The Sharks Choice winner will be awarded $10,000 along with a 10x10 Booth Space at G2E 2019 and post-show promotion.  The Customer Choice Winner will receive a 10x10 Booth space at G2E 2019 and post-show promotion. 6 runners-up will present throughout the day at the Innovation Lab, a booth located on the show floor.
