The selection will be based on how closely we believe that your proposition fits our investor base and on the investor attractiveness of your proposition.
The purpose of the training session is to prepare the selected companies for their pitch to actual investors during the Elevator Pitch Event and to give companies the opportunity to benefit from feedback and advice from a panel of investors, business, corporate, IP and legal advisers.
Each company will be given 6 minutes to pitch as part of a pitch “Investing Game”
