This exciting event is open to all student companies.
‘Pitch it’ is the chance to sell your product/service to a group of business professionals and to win investment in your company.
To take part there are two things you will need to do. Firstly you will need to submit a two page report on your business by the end of December. The template for the report is on the Company Programme website under the heading ‘Pitch it’. This report will be submitted to our Jury.
In January a panel of business leaders will visit your school and you will get the chance to present your idea face-to-face.
To qualify to take part in ‘Pitch it’ your company must be able to do one of the following:
- already be selling a product/service
- demonstrate that you have ordered your product/service
- If you are developing a brand new product/service you must have a working prototype and the costs of manufacture
Remember that to qualify for the finals of the Company Programme in March you must take part in ‘Pitch it’.
There will be three prizes of £100 and four prizes of £50 awarded across all the businesses taking part in the company programme.
