PitchFest

Watch this quick video to get an introduction.

NEW FORMAT:  For the first-time ever, we've opened up PitchFest to our whole Dent community of more than 1000 members to find the ultimate Pitch Champion.


From all the entries we've had, we've whittled it down to the TOP 10 entrepreneurs and we're giving them a chance to pitch in front of an open-invitation audience of over 75 business owners and high-profile judges.

 Watch as seemingly complex business models are explained to you with clarity and credibility in five minutes, by entrepreneurs and corporate leaders who have industry experience and are passionate about the opportunities their business will create.


If you enjoy programmes like Dragons' Den and The Apprentice but want a glimpse of real life pitching with judges who give constructive feedback (as against rude or self serving), then this is definitely for you.

We host these events because they help us share best practice while attracting businesses that may qualify to apply for one of our business accelerator programs.  

However, we believe that a business should do more than just attract opportunity for itself. We believe that as entrepreneur it's our responility to create more so we can contribute more as well. The UN Goals for Sustainable Development provides a framework for partnerships and contribute thats worthy of the challenges and opportunities we face as a generation.

GOOD BUSINESS, DOING GOOD

 

It's why from this event and from our accelerators, we'll make a contribution that supports the UN Goals for Sustainable Giving via the giving platform B1G1. Read more here
