Pitch@Palace 9.0 reached its climax in April, with blockchain startup VChain taking the crown.
Pitch@Palace 10.0 commences with three on-tour dates around the UK. 42 entrepreneurs will be selected for the Boot Camp round, where they’ll receive advice and support from expert mentors. A panel of judges then select 12 entrepreneurs for a three-minute pitch in the final. The remaining 30 entrepreneurs will also get the chance to pitch in the final, for 30 seconds each.
The final takes place at St James’s Palace on 6th November in front of an influential audience from the worlds of entrepreneurship, technology, media and investment. The overall winner will be selected by audience vote, and the People’s Choice award chosen by the public.
