The likes of wonky-veg distributor and food waste warrior Oddbox, 3D digital advertisers HYPERVSN and agri-tech company Small Robot Company have all competed in the past – startups who’ve gone on to shake up their market and create game-changing products and services.

What happens at The Pitch Final?

In London, finalists have three minutes to pitch their business to our expert judges – this year’s panel includes Jimmy’s Iced Coffee founder Jim Cregan, Crowdcube founder Darren Westlake, Runway East’s Natasha Guerra and Oddbox co-founder Emilie Vanpoperinghe.

In addition to catching a glimpse of Britain’s next big thing, we have inspiring and engaging talks tailored for entrepreneurs. And there’s the opportunity to hobnob with our judges, finalists, investors and journalists. If that isn’t enough, drinks and pizza are on us!

“We were The Pitch finalists a month after we launched. It was a fantastic opportunity to shout about our product, network and learn. We found the workshops really helpful, especially around pitching and preparing for investment. In fact, we met Crowdcube there and went on to raise £250,000,” said Rockit co-founder Matt Dyson.

If you’ve started your own business – or are interested in doing so – nab yourself a ticket to this exciting event where you can meet other entrepreneurs and get inspired about where you could go in future.
