Startup Pitch 2016

For the first time in Malta, we are introducing the SiGMA Startup Pitch, bringing together eight good startups and several investors under one roof. With so many investors wanting to join the gaming scene in Malta as well as worldwide startups, there’s never been a better time to launch this session.

Each startup will have three minutes to present their project, then face a session of Q&A from the investors and the audience in a Dragon’s Den-like environment.
