Start ups: enter the picth competition:

Startups are invited to write a one-page brief of their company for selection by a panel of Tech Club members and staff from the London Business School Entrepreneurship faculty. The brief should contain a description of:

  • the business’s activities and business model,
  • your number of customers or users,
  • the stage of your company, your funding, profitability and number of employees,
  • and most importantly, the interesting product or technology that you can demo on the day.

The brief should be submitted to techclub@london.edu by 6 Feb 2009. Selected companies will be notified by Friday the 13th – lucky for some!

Each selected startup will be invited to pitch their company for 2 minutes in front of the Tech Summit attendees, so it’s the perfect opportunity to present your ideas to a range of London’s top technology executives and investors. Attendees will be asked to vote for the most promising startup, bringing your company valuable attention and connections with the London Business School community.

Startups are also invited to take part in a “demo corner” during the conference lunch and coffee breaks, where you can show off your company’s technology to London Technology Summit attendees .

 

VC Cafe will be there to meet with start ups at the “demo pit” and the pitch competition.  Will you join us?
