Women Unlimited have just joined The Pitch as an event partner. We’ve put our name behind this fantastic event because we think it is a great opportunity for you to get business support and promote your business. Click here to enter now.
The Pitch, in partnership with BusinessZone.co.uk, invites entrepreneurs to submit their business ideas and pitch to a panel of experts for the chance to win £50,000 worth of business support. Eighty entrepreneurs will be selected from across the UK to compete at ‘The Pitch Live’, a two-day event in Liverpool where four winners and 16 wild card contestants (who will compete for votes online) will be selected to go through to the Grand Final in London in November. The Pitch Live will also feature interactive workshops, training sessions and Q&As with serial entrepreneurs and business experts.
The Pitch is dedicated to giving budding entrepreneurs the stepping stone they need to take their businesses to the next level. Here are just a few ways that entering can help boost your business:
* Publicity: From social media to the local press, being part of The Pitch will bring a whole range of media coverage and increase awareness of your brand.
* Networking: Hundreds of entrepreneurs get involved with The Pitch every year, and if there’s one thing they do well, it’s networking!
* Expert advice: Our experienced judges and industry experts are just as passionate about boosting your business as we are, and they’re itching to share their expertise and success secrets with you.
* Prize package: Business support, software, products, media coverage and PR and mentoring worth £50,000! It really is a money-can’t-buy prize.
For 2012 The Pitch is introducing a shiny new social profile for successful applicants, which you can use to tell everyone why your business should win The Pitch 2012, upload photos and encourage followers to spread the word with your very own social media campaign.
If you’re an entrepreneur with an idea that the world needs to hear about, The Pitch 2012 is the competition for you!
