What is TechPitch 4.5?

TechPitch 4.5 provides a platform for tech start-ups across all verticals to present their business idea to a panel of expert judges and our savvy audience of investors, journalists, angel investors, professional service providers and analysts.

How does it work? At each event, eight start-ups are selected to spend three minutes pitching their business plan, followed by a brief Q and A with the judging panel. A winner is selected by both the judges and the audience.

Post-pitches, our ever-popular networking portion gives start-ups the opportunities to interface with like-minded individuals, fellow entrepreneurs, potential investors and partners.

For investors, TechPitch 4.5 events are a chance to witness first-hand the innovation, disruption, and emerging trends in the UK tech scene. Start-ups that have graced our stage have gone on to award-winning heights, with investment from angels, incubators, accelerators, and partners.

Over the past seven years, we have introduced vertical-specific events in response to the growth, innovation and disruption in these areas. In addition to our established 'general-tech' TechPitch 4.5 we also host TechPitch 4.5 Music, Media & Entertainment, TechPitch 4.5 Sports, Health & Fitness and TechPitch 4.5 Fashion, Luxe & Retail.

We run several events per year and are always open to applications from start-ups. Many have pitched more than once, returning with honed skills and a refined proposition based on feedback from previous events.
