Pitchfest November 2016 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 Unipart.  Over 20 companies pitched to investors on the day, which saw a range of startups from mobile apps to electric motorcycles, from electronic patient records to a bike-sharing scheme. Venturefest Oxford executive chairwoman Lynn Shepherd was pleased with how well the session went and felt it would lead to companies attracting investment. The next Pitchfest will be held in February. Pitchfest is run by Venturefest Oxford, who also runs a major showcase for businesses and investors in June. This year it was held at the King's Centre in Osney Mead and attracted 1,000 delegates.
