Pitch2Win: Pitch your business ideas for the chance to win £250!

If you’re in the process of starting a business or becoming self-employed then you will definitely not want to miss this amazing opportunity from the Enterprise Team!


The Enterprise Team have recently revamped their annual competition and are now offering students and graduates to pitch their ideas for a cash prize every month.

Pitch2Win is a competition for any type of business idea. You could be looking to become a freelance graphic designer, launch a new fashion brand or start a media production company. Whatever your idea, it is likely you’ll need some cash to get it off the ground. This is where Pitch2Win can help!

Simply, the Enterprise Team want to hear your idea rounded up in a 2 minute pitch.

Pitching will take place at the end of each month where you will have the opportunity to pitch your idea to the judging panel. The winner from each month will receive a £250 cash prize and an invitation to pitch for a larger cash prize at the Pitch2Win Awards in April 2016.

There are 12 pitches available each month which will be allocated on a first come first served basis. 

Your idea can be in the early stages of development or may be an existing business which needs further support.

Pitching will take place on the following dates:

  • Thursday 29 October, 2-4pm
  • Thursday 26 November, 2-4pm
  • Thursday 28 January 2016, 2-4pm
  • Thursday 25 November 2016, 2-4pm
