Pitch@Palace On Tour Manchester
Pitch@Palace On Tour Manchester took place on 8th September, 2015 at The Sharp Project.
The Duke of York founded Pitch@Palace to support Entrepreneurs with the acceleration and amplification of their business ideas. Pitch@Palace On Tour aims to provide broader opportunities for Entrepreneurs from across the United Kingdom to become more aware of the programme and connect to local stakeholders to provide mentoring in developing their business. Pitch@Palace On Tour is part of Pitch@Palace 4.0, which is focussed on The Internet of Things and Smart Cities.
His Royal Highness watched 16 Entrepreneurs pitching to an audience of 170 guests, including CEOs, Angels and Mentors from Manchester and the North West.
The winners of the event were Innovative Healthcare Solutions, Howz and BlockDox who will attend Bootcamp in London in October, 2015. For a full list of the Entrepreneurs, please see below. 12 Food and Drink Entrepreneurs also attended the event to showcase their products to the guests.
The Duke commented “It has become clearly evident that we need to take what we do in London and to expand around the regions. This week we are in Manchester, next week we are in Bristol and the week after we are in Edinburgh. This is about finding more Entrepreneurs, more new businesses and raising the awareness amongst other people that there are fantastic businesses in the regions that don’t otherwise get the exposure which is rightfully expected”.
Following the announcement of the winning Entrepreneurs, HRH visited The Sharp Project. The Duke met with businesses based in the building and apprentices from The SharpFutures Programme.
