Description:

Perfect your investment pitch: • Raise the profile of your business. • Come face-to-face with investors, innovators and fellow entrepreneurs. By taking part you could: • Win over £1,000 in cash prizes sponsored by Gowling WLG, Innovation Birmingham, Warwick Science Park and Birmingham Research Park. • Have a one-to-one meeting with investors. • Gain investment in your business. Pitchfest is a unique opportunity to improve your ability to win investment while boosting your profile in front of a national audience of investors looking for the best new opportunities. The competition begins with a workshop, helping you develop your investment pitch. The judging rounds follow, where you pitch directly to a panel of investors. Then comes the final at Venturefest WM. This is where the very best business ideas compete to win the Best Pitch award, £1,000 or more in prize money, and potential future investment. “Since taking part we have secured £150,000 SEIS funding, won £20,000 in a regional Climate-KIC competition and have exceeded our early development aspirations by three times”.
