What is TechPitch 4.5?

TechPitch 4.5 is a platform for tech startups and entrepreneurs to show-case their business idea to a wider audience, including investors, journalists, potential partners and peers.

It takes the form of an evening pitch competition which brings together tech startups, investors, entrepreneurs, as well as business and technology experts, to see the latest tech business ideas receive productive feedback on their proposition and pitch from a panel of judges with mixed business, technology, marketing, investment and financial expertise. .

TechPitch 4.5 provides an opportunity for potential investors to observe and learn about the latest tech startups, as well as new technology business trends. Some of the startups presenting at TechPitch 4.5 will have profited from the 2Pears pitch-training workshops organised with the support from UK Trade & Investment, UKTI. .

For entrepreneurs and tech startups, TechPitch 4.5 has proven fertile ground for networking and making useful connections with potential investors, business experts and advisors, journalists, as well as peers, potential partners and users. .

TechPitch 4.5 and the pitch-training workshops, which to date have trained over 950 tech startups to pitch, are established and well-respected fixtures on the London tech startup scene. The winning companies most often go on to big and bright things, including funding, incubation, and successful growth, following the spotlight being shone on them at TechPitch 4.5 .

The inaugural TechPitch 4.5 event was held on 10 February, 2011, and ever since TechPitch 4.5 has been held every couple of months in London drawing a high-calibre crowd and generating a lot of interest in addition to vertical sector events Music TechPitch 4.5 and Sports TechPitch 4.5.
