QuickPitch

Free tickets are available now for our Quick pitch 2020 26 February event at the HIVE.

University of Worcester students, start-ups and businesses trading up to 12 months will have up to 5 minutes to pitch their business idea to a small judging panel of local business experts, in front of a supportive entrepreneurial community.

The event is designed to encourage those who are new to pitching to hone their personal selling skills, whilst providing a platform to promote and gain exposure for their business concepts.

It is free to enter and the winner’s prize of £250.00 has kindly been provided by the event’s main corporate sponsor, Wynne-Jones IP. Every shortlisted entrepreneur will receive a free year’s membership to the national business support platform Enterprise Nation.

How to Apply:

We will be accepting applications between now and February 9 2020 for University of Worcester students,

You might also be thinking about freelance work, considering a career change and need some advice and signposting, or would simply like to see what the next great business idea is. Either way, we encourage any student interested to attend.
