Take a step towards turning your business idea into a reality or practice your pitch for your new business.

Enterprising Worcestershire and The University of Worcester are jointly hosting Start-Up QuickPitch 2020, taking place on the 26th of February at The Hive.

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 – for more information please visit: https://www.enterprisenation.com

“We are really keen that people from the local business community know that this event is for them and they can apply if they are either pre-start or within their first 12 months of trading.

You might 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.
