Apply now – high profile opportunity for creative industries companies

SETsquared is seeking three companies to put forward to the Pitch@Palace event at Buckingham Palace on 23rd March, with the opportunity to pitch to a high profile audience of investors. The theme is creative industries, in particular technology ideas and innovation in: advertising & communications, architecture, design, film & moving image, media & publishing, software & gaming and wearables. 

The Opportunity

If selected to pitch at the event, not only will your company get access to an extremely high profile audience made up of angel investors, venture capitalists, prospective mentors, advisors and CEOs but also the associated national and regional media coverage.

SETsquared has been involved with Pitch@Palace since its inception. At a previous event, Bath SETsquared member Industrial Phycology won the ‘pitch with the greatest commercial potential’. Find out more about their experience and what they got from the event

There is also another opportunity for ‘food or beverage’ products within the SETsquared community to be served at the event, as a marketing activity to this high profile audience.

The Selection Process

SETsquared will submit three companies to a panel of judges at the Palace, who will then select 42 to go through to a bootcamp on 12th March. Companies that have been selected for the bootcamp will be notified on 2nd March and must attend. All companies selected for bootcamp will attend the pitch event on 23rd March but only 12 from the 42 will be selected at bootcamp to pitch on the night.

 Get involved

To apply, please send a 160 character summary of your company/technology to Karen Brooks by 18th February, if successful you will then need to complete a further short application form by 23rd February.
