Pitchfest in the media

Pitchfest was in a recent Oxford Times feature. The one-day event brought together several investors and high-tech start-ups for a day of pitching and networking at Harwell Campus.

Mark Evans (Chief Executive of Adaptix) was one of the presenting companies at Pitchfest. Speaking to The Oxford Times, he pointed out:

“Oxfordshire has been guilty of hiding its light under a bushel, in not taking its fantastic innovations to market but that is changing. We have some of the world’s most advanced technology here, including the Diamond Synchrotron and the heritage through firms like Oxford Instruments, which started in a shed.”

He added: “Pitchfest and Venturefest are part of building that vibrant economy and this is a great place to bring entrepreneurs, investors and ideas together.

“Some of those pitching here have potential to become £100m-plus businesses.”
