We are Tech North

Tips for the perfect investor pitch, from our Northern Stars

From the Bloomberg pitching event - a phone screen showing a positive comment about the pitching companies

Last week our Northern Stars had a busy 24 hours in London.

First there was a visit to 10 Downing Street, where they met with Liam Maxwell, National Technology Advisor. Then they took part in a pitching session at Bloomberg‘s London HQ and followed that with a PR workshop courtesy of Fourth Day PR.

Pitching at Bloomberg

By now, our Northern Stars have their pitches well refined. They knew exactly how to capture the imagination of the investors assembled in Bloomberg’s swish events space.

During the presentations, we used events engagement app Glisser so the investors could ask any questions that came to mind. The investors asked plenty of tricky questions, which our companies handled smoothly. 

After the presentations, there was plenty of time to network and have further conversations with the investors.

We also grabbed our Northern Stars so they could share their tips and tricks for making great pitches in front of investors. Have a look at the video below to find out more:
