Pitch@Palace On Tour London took place at RISE London on 26th January, 2016.
Pitch@Palace On Tour aims to connect Entrepreneurs with local stakeholders to receive mentoring to develop their business ideas. Pitch@Palace On Tour London was the first event as part of Pitch@Palace 5.0, which is focused on Biotech. Events will also take place in Manchester, Glasgow and Cambridge.
Richard Heggie, Head of Growth at Barclays, moderated the event with 19 Biotech Entrepreneurs pitching to an audience.
Opening the event, The Duke of York said “What (Pitch@Palace) is trying to do is to increase the likelihood of your business’ survival by giving you more customers, more distribution, and mentorship. It is not simply about finance.”
Mutaz Qubbaj, Founder of Squirrel, who won Pitch@Palace 2.0 in November, 2014 said “Pitch@Palace is a catalyst which can truly change the trajectory of your business.”
