This spring season seems to be very inspiring and busy for Scale-up Champions Investment Readiness Programme! As Demo Day is approaching, the startup teams work had designing the perfect pitches for the Investors’ Board. 16 teams have engaged into Pitching workshop activities on May 10.
Startups were introduced to the theoretical aspects of pitching in front of investors and got familiar with trendy presentation tools. Also, the Pitching trainers gave practical insights on how to define Value Proposition that sells and challenged startups to practice 30-second introduction pitches.
The workshop was moderated by well-known the UK based trainers Ian Tracey and Nicola Musgrove. Ian is the former Head of Access to Funding and Finance at the KTN and STFC, and now lead trainer for all workshops delivered by Anchored In. Nicola formerly ran the ESA Business Incubation Centre. Over that time, Nicola and Ian ran access to funding and finance programmes for several tens of cohorts of start-ups and SMEs, and refined the program to meet sector-specific needs.

Pitching Workshop No 2 took place on May 18. It has proved an opportunity for the startups to deliver their prepared 7-minute pitch to the presenters and the other participants in the group.
