It aims to guide, help and connect early-stage businesses with potential supporters, including CEOs, influencers, angel investors, mentors and business partners. Pitch@Palace offers the chance to get Tech businesses in front of a global audience of influencers who can catapult them to the next level and, according to its website, has helped over 247 grow, with some now enjoying huge global success. Each Pitch@Palace campaign has a different theme, with is a focus on different areas of the UK Tech industry.
Entrepreneurs who apply to the Pitch@Palace are first selected to participate in an On Tour Event, one of three regional heats from which they may get the invitation to attend a Boot Camp. At Boot Camp they receive support and guidance on how to develop and hone their pitch, as well as support with investment, introductions and strategic guidance. All of the entrepreneurs selected for Boot Camp are invited to the final event at St. James’s Palace, and a selection of these pitch directly to an influential audience from the worlds of entrepreneurship, technology, media and investment. All of the Pitch@Palace Entrepreneurs, whether selected to pitch at St. James’s Palace or not, join the growing alumni network of entrepreneurs and receive ongoing support.
A Defence themed On Tour Event is scheduled to take place on 31 January 2018.
