The wait is finally over for those who took part in the Elevator Pitch LIVE 2016 demo day two weeks ago – the winners will be announced this evening.

Taking place at ‘M’ by Montcalm in London this evening, the awards ceremony will honour the winners of our flagship competition, featuring some of the UK’s top startups working in the HealthTech, AdTech/MarTech, PropTech, FinTech and Cybersecurity sectors. Each of these winners will get a professionally filmed pitch video.

Other awards handed out on the night will include ‘Standout Success’, ‘Best Pitch’ and ‘Peoples’ Choice’. The lucky startup that walks away with the ‘Standout Success’ award will be flown out to California to take part in a three-day business course worth over $7,000 per person.
