Are you raising investment at the moment? Here are three ways to get kickstarted!
Submit your one-pager to Quarterly Investment Briefing
Please share your one-pager for the next Quarterly Investment Briefing. This will be shared with c. 300 investors and enablers of investment either at the event or via our newsletter and password protected platform. The deadline is 14 Sept!
Please note:
  • Submitting a full pitch deck is optional, we just need a one page summary of your proposition.
  • We’re using a new platform to collate the one pagers this time, from Invest West so you’ll need to make an account to submit.
Practice your pitch and learn from others at Virtual PitchMe 
We are running a regular, online pitch session which gives founders an opportunity to practice their pitch, to receive constructive feedback or to try out a new approach to a long-standing pitch. The three selected companies pitching will receive live feedback from a panel of experts and for those of us in the audience, we have the chance to learn from others and share our thoughts.
If you would like to participate and receive feedback on your pitch or attend the next event on 9th September, contact Abby to apply to pitch: or sign up to Virtual PitchMe to watch and learn.
Silicon Gorge Pitch Competition
If you’re a startup or scale-up currently looking for investment of between £100k and £2m, we have launched the Silicon Gorge Autumn edition. The showcase will allow up to 12 startups or scale-ups from the South West of England and South Wales the opportunity to pitch their business to a virtual room of investors and enablers of investment from throughout the UK and further afield.
