TechPitch 4.5 is a platform for tech startups and entrepreneurs to show-case their business idea to a wider audience, including investors, journalists, potential partners and peers.

It takes the form of an evening pitch competition which brings together tech startups, investors, entrepreneurs, as well as business and technology experts, to see the latest tech businesses, receive productive feedback on their proposition and pitch from a panel of judges with mixed business, technology, marketing, investment and financial expertise.

TechPitch 4.5 provides an opportunity for potential investors to observe and learn about the latest tech startups, as well as new technology business trends. Some of the startups presenting at TechPitch 4.5 will have profited from the 2Pears pitch-training workshops organised with the support from UK Trade & Investment, UKTI.

For entrepreneurs and tech startups, TechPitch 4.5 has proven fertile ground for networking and making useful connections with potential investors, business experts and advisors, journalists, as well as peers, potential partners and users. .

TechPitch 4.5 and the pitch-training workshops, which to date have trained over 600 tech startups to pitch, are established and well-respected fixtures on the London tech startup scene. The winning companies most often go on to big and bright things, including funding, incubation, and successful growth, following the spotlight being shone on them at TechPitch 4.5 .

The inaugural TechPitch 4.5 event was held on 10 February, 2011, and ever since TechPitch 4.5 has been held every couple of months in London having featured 120 startups pitching to a high-calibre crowd and generating a lot of interest.

APPLY TO PITCH - deadline 31 August 2014
By getting up on stage and pitching your business idea and model, in this case to the panel of experts we have put together for TechPitch 4.5, you will gain exposure and interest from both potential users and potential funders, as well as from media in general. And you get to practise and receive immediate feedback on your pitch.

The pitch session is not about achieving funding immediately, but gaining interest, making connections, and hopefully starting relevant discussions, so if you like the idea of pitching you will be good!
