The Pitch had the highest number of entries ever this year. We’ve spent the last six months hearing from passionate startup founders who have crazy, game-changing ideas – and it’s almost time for them to take the stage and pitch to the world.
The top 90 startups are competing at our online semi-final events over the next five weeks. Each event will be judged by industry-leading experts and investors, but anyone can tune in and watch the pitches.
Send your favourite startup to The Pitch Final 🏆
The judges’ scores will decide who makes it through to The Pitch Final in November, but there’s also a public vote to send two wildcard startups to the final. If you’re a friend, family member or huge fan of one of our semi-finalists, register to watch their semi-final below and we’ll send you a link to vote at the end.
We’ll be updating The Pitch 2020 leaderboard as the scores come in, so keep checking back!
