Programme sessions

09:30 – 10:45

Pitching for Success will be to an audience that includes investors, support organisations and individuals.

The Investor Panel will include professional funding organisations; including speakers from crowd investment (Peer2Peer, equity, loans), venture capital and public sector funding.  Each panelist will give an overview of what they look for when investing or funding a company followed by Q&A with the audience.

After all the presentations are completed, the excitement continues as the audience votes to select a winning company. The two session winners will be announced at 15:45 and will be able to pitch again to the audience, who will decide the overall winner on the day for the £1,000 cash prize.

As well as the live pitches and investor panels, the companies from both sessions will be available in the John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre Foyer for networking.
