Do you have an innovative tech business idea? Are you unsure about the next step? Perhaps you have a tech company you would like to scale up? SETsquared can help! Sign up for #Idea2Pitch event hosted by SETsquared Bristol to help shape your ideas, into a pitch for gaining interest or support in your venture.

#Idea2Pitch is a free interactive workshop on what makes a good business idea, and how to pitch it for maximum effect. You will also have an introduction to SETsquared, the Global No.1 university-backed hi-tech incubator. The session is followed by a SETsquared Connect networking event; an opportunity for you to informally meet mentors and experts in residence, as well as the start-up community. A great opportunity to put your pitch into practice!

SETsquared director Monika Radclyffe commented: “Having a business idea is great, but it is said that ideas only account for 1% of the success, so there is much more work to do! We created #Idea2Pitch to help early stage entrepreneurs advance their thinking, and teach how to pitch their ventures to potential customers or investors. The event is a taster of the business support we provide to SETsquared members - accessible to a wider audience through #Idea2pitch.”

Tim Sheppard, one of last year’s attendees, said: “The pitching practice was the most valuable part of the day - both trying our own and listening to others, and Grev's focus on what we remembered from each was very effective. The evening networking was also excellent - great people, good conversations. It helped for Monika to tell everyone to find us and listen to our trial pitches. I had some willing listeners and lots of people wanted my business card as a result!”
