About The Pitch

The Pitch is one of the UK’s only independent startup competitions.

The Pitch helps startups create a kick-ass pitch and gives them the platform to use it. Since its launch in 2008, it’s helped businesses like Resolver, Latest Free Stuff and Much Better Adventures.

The competition is split into two parts: our boot camps and our live final. We take 250 startups to boot camps, where they attend business workshops and work with a pitching coach. The top 10 go through to our grand final in Bristol.

Though the competition has gone through a number of changes over the years, The Pitch keeps the same aim at its core: to give startups the skills, inspiration and network they need to succeed.

The Pitch is run by Box 2 Media, a small Bristol-based startup. We work with businesses like Enterprise Nation, Microsoft and Greenwich University to promote entrepreneurship and champion British startups.
