Companies will pitch either in the morning or afternoon ‘Pitching for Success’ session. After all the presentations are completed, the excitement continues as the audience votes to select a winning company!
Each session will include a panel made up of professional funding organisations; including speakers from Crowd investment (Peer2Peer, Equity, Loans), Venture Capital and Public Sector funding. Each investor panel speaker will give an overview of what they look for when investing or funding a company followed by Q&A with the audience.
Pitching companies will also have the opportunity to win part of a prize package. The audience will be provided with a voting system and will decide the best session winners. The two session winners will be announced late afternoon and will be able to pitch again to the audience, who will decide the overall winner on the day. A total prize support package in excess of £10K is available.
As well as the live pitches and funder’s panel, the two sessions will conclude with networking in a designated area. Companies from the two session will be available in this area and be available to network and have 1-2-1’s with Venturefest participants.
