How does The Pitch startup competition work?
Applicants from each city will be selected to give a 90-second pitch to investors at regional finals across the UK. All finalists are given the opportunity to work with a pitching coach to prepare.
The Pitch 2023’s regional finals will be held in London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Edinburgh. All finalists will be given support with promotion and PR so you can shout about your journey with The Pitch, and why you deserve to win.
Our panel of judges will choose a winner. Plus there’s a People’s Choice vote so fans can get involved too!
After each regional, we share the judges’ feedback with detailed scoring to help startups improve their pitch. Scores will be added to our leaderboard, which will be seen by thousands of people, including investors, journalists and potential customers.
The top startups from the regional finals go on to compete in The Pitch Final.
Who is The Pitch for?
The Pitch is for founders, entrepreneurs and startups who’ve launched, proven their idea works and are seeking funding to take their business to the next stage.
We’re incredibly proud of everything our past Pitchers achieve. If you want to find out more about who has taken part in the past, have a look at our Alumni page.
