Pitchfest improves your ability to win investment while simulataneously boosting your business's profile.
Over the last 4 years, Pitchfest - which is run by the Centre for Growth at Aston University, Bizzlnn at the University of Birmingham and Minerva at the University of Warwick Science Park - has put 100 entrepreneurs directly in front of investors and helped bring over £3,000,000 of investments to the region's small businesses.
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, hosted by Venturefest West Midlands, where the best business pitches compete in front of a live audience of investors and entrepreneurs to win the Best Pitch Award.
The Pitchfest 2019 Final is due to take place on 4th July 2019. Please check back at a later date for the workshops and judging panels dates and venues.
Applications for Pitchfest 2019 are now closed.
