Pitch for Investment with Entrepreneurs Collective

Thursday 31st August, 6pm

Our monthly series in partnership with Entrepreneurs Collective is back! The series provides an opportunity for entrepreneurs to demonstrate their company plan or product in exchange for funding.

Aspiring entrepreneurs may use these challenges to hone their business abilities, raise publicity for their business concept or product, and possibly earn funding to help them achieve their goals with the opportunity to secure up to £150,000 in investment for winning start-ups. Entrepreneurs Collective is a member community of 5000+ members including Founders, Angel Investors, VCs and Start-up Enthusiasts.

Hear from five founders that are looking to disrupt the market with their business idea, each with a 5 minute presentation and a 5 minute Q&A from the panel of investor judges.

How can participating in pitch competitions benefit you?
