About this event

Laurence aspired for entrepreneurial success from an early age. He has many fond memories from growing up of playing cards around the dinner table, or computer games with friends, and intuitively knew that the social aspect of these experiences was something special.

However, turning that experience into a viable business wasn’t simple; it took a lot of hard work. In fact, Laurence made multiple attempts at building his own business whilst completing his studies. He went on to work in the finance sector and could have easily settled for the ‘normal life’. But he was determined to create more. After many more attempts, he found the success he was looking for, developing a unique social gaming model incorporating sweepstake competitions, and creating VGW.

VGW may have started as a one-man show but it has grown significantly from that point. VGW now employs over 400 people globally with offices located in Perth, Sydney, Malta, San Francisco, Manila and Seoul all working together to disrupt online social gaming and have an awesome time along the way.

Come and hear Laurence's story, make some new friends and check out VGW's new Perth Head Office.
