Pitchfest - West Midlands 2018

Pitchfest - Venturefest

Pitchfest is a competition that improves your ability to win investment while simultaneously boosting your business's profile.

Over the last 3 years, Pitchfest has put 90 entrepreneurs directly in front of investors and helped bring over £1,750,000 of investment to the region's small businesses. 

The competition begins with a workshop, helping you develop your investment pitch. Judging rounds follow, where you pitch directly to a panel of investors. Then comes the final where the best business pitches compete before a live audience of investors and entrepreneurs to win the Best Pitch Award and potential future investment.
