The Pitch

We work with early-stage startups that show incredible promise.

The Pitch is an annual competition that aims to support UK startups, helping delegates develop their business and build confidence. It’s been running for over a decade, and in that time we’ve worked with some amazing entrepreneurs and partners.

We hold boot camps across the country to find Britain’s best startup talent and take the fifteen most exciting new businesses to a grand final in London. The finalists pitch to a judging panel of industry-leading entrepreneurs and investors to win a money-can’t-buy package of mentoring and support.
