Over the last three years, Pitchfest – which is run by the Centre for Growth at Aston University, BizzInn at the University of Birmingham and Minerva at the University of Warwick Science Park – has put 90 entrepreneurs directly in front of investors and helped bring over £2,750,000 of investment to the region's small businesses.
The competition begins with pitch preparation, to help you develop your investment pitch, followed by judging rounds to a panel of investors.
There is then a final where the best business pitches compete before a live audience of investors and entrepreneurs to win the Best Pitch Award and a Golden Ticket to
access Minerva’s professional network of Business Angel Investors.
This is the last call for applications and they must be received by 9am on Monday 13 August 2018.
The judging panel will be held on 6 September and the final will be held at iCentrum, Birmingham.
