"Where the Canadian Gaming Industry Meets"


If You Have an Idea, then the Canadian Gaming Innovators’ Launchpad is Waiting for You!

What does the next generation of gaming enthusiasts or sports betters want to play?

The Canadian Gaming Innovators' Launchpad is a pitch competition designed to stimulate innovation in the Canadian gaming industry – casino, lottery, charitable, internet, and mobile. If you’ve come up with a new twist on daily fantasy sports, sports betting, or skill-based slot games, or want to take a traditional game like bingo or blackjack to the next level, we want to hear about it.

Your pitch will be seen by dozens of key decision makers in the gaming industry. There's never been a better platform to pitch a new business idea, as you’ll have access to decision makers, potential investment capital, visibility, and the opportunity to make your case!

The winner will be awarded a combination of cash and donations in-kind to help them launch their idea, and all finalists will earn significant exposure to the Canadian gaming industry.

The Canadian Gaming Association (CGA) is the sponsor and administrator of the competition.

About the Pitch Competition

The competition is made up of two rounds: A Preliminary Round and the Final Round, consisting of an exhibition and a pitch-off presentation.

Finalists will be selected from the Preliminary Round and invited to the Final Round in Fall 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia, to display their entry in the Summit’s exhibition hall, followed by a pitch-off on the main stage.

In the Preliminary Round, contestants will submit an entry package comprised of a written summary of and supporting information for their pitch.

You must participate in the Preliminary Round to be considered for the Final Round.


Entry Form

Please read and understand the rules of the pitch competition before submitting your entry.

The judges will review your answers to these questions before being given the option to read the main submission document, so this is where you get to excite the judges and make them want to read more about your submission!
