Welcome to Pitch@Palace
from HRH The Duke of York

I am immensely proud to have Founded Pitch@Palace and seen its development since the first Pitch@Palace event in the Spring of 2014. I am of the firm belief that supporting Entrepreneurs is one key to building British Prosperity. A more entrepreneurial economy and people with an enterprising culture will create jobs for our next generation workforce. Our prominence in Science, Technology and Engineering is undisputed, creating valuable ideas and inventions to seed business of the future. We also see across the educational landscape numerous projects aimed at building young people’s entrepreneurial skills. More businesses can be created in the UK through a combination of these factors. A key task is to now ensure we do more to help these businesses to Scale.

Pitch@Palace 6.0 returns to a broad theme and we welcome applications from a range of sectors including:

• Biotech and Medical Technology
• Consumer Technology and Internet of Things
• Cybersecurity
• Data Management and Analytics
• Educational Technology
• Energy and Environmental Technology
• Fintech
• Industrial Technology
• Media, Communications and Entertainment Technology
• Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, and Virtual Reality

Pitch@Palace will go On Tour as we prepare for Boot Camp at the Harwell Space Campus on 14th October, 2016. This time On Tour events will take place in Cornwall, Northern Ireland and Sheffield.
Applying for and attending one of the Pitch On Tour events is an excellent opportunity for businesses to help themselves succeed through the Pitch@Palace platform. They are also a very good opportunity to meet local supporters.

I hope that you will consider applying. It is only by applying to as many of these supporting organisations’ events, such as Pitch@Palace, that you can give yourself an opportunity from participating and leading your business into the future with confidence and preparedness.
