twitterlinkedinFacebookgoogle_plustwitterlinkedinFacebookgoogle_plus

Yesterday we held our Elevator Pitch LIVE 2016 competition in an East-London cinema, and by golly it was a show-stopper! There was a great turnout and the 25 shortlisted companies delivered fantastic pitches.

We saw pitches from companies across each of the following sectors: FinTech, PropTech, HealthTech, AdTech/MarTech and Cybersecurity.

While the panel of five judges (four notable investors and myself) will decide on the winner from each category, as well as the recipient of the Standout Success Award, you have the chance to vote for the company you think should win the People’s Choice Award.

Voting closes on 16th November and the winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony in London on 24th November.

You can vote for your favourite using the form at the bottom of this page, you’ll need to select your favourite, then scroll down and click the ‘Submit’ button. Here’s a bit more info about each company to help you make your decision:
