Pitching in

Over the last four years, Pitchfest, run by Aston University, University of Birmingham and University of Warwick Science Park, has put over 100 entrepreneurs directly in front of investors and helped bring over £2,750,000 of investment to the region’s small businesses.

For successful applicants, the competition begins with pitch preparation, helping to refine your investment pitch. Judging rounds follow, where you pitch directly to a panel of investors, receiving valuable feedback on your presentation. Then comes the public final, where the best business pitches compete in front of a live audience of investors and entrepreneurs to win the Best Pitch Award and a Golden Ticket worth £500 to access a professional network of Business Angel Investors.

Whatever the outcome of the final, Pitchfest is about helping businesses gain exposure and build confidence to secure future investment. Judging takes place in May and the Pitchfest Final is at the NEC in July. Visit www2.aston.ac.uk/aston-business-school/business/centre-for-growth/pitchfest-2019 or use #PitchfestWM to find out more.
