Pitchfest is an investment readiness programme to train RAI firms deliver ‘the perfect pitch’ and a chance to present to investors.
Investment-hungry firms working in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence (RAI) are being invited to take part in an investment readiness programme to provide free tuition about what is expected when raising cash and how to put forward a strong proposition.
What is Pitchfest?
It’s a series of intensive training events for RAI companies, typically start-ups either pre-trading or early stage growth to help prepare them to pitch for equity investment. The programme concludes with a live pitching event in front of real investors. It also provides a high quality networking experience for entrepreneurs and investors to spark new ideas and opportunities.
Our last programme was held over January – March 2018 and culminated with 8 companies presenting their businesses to a room of investors.
What training is provided?
- Development, structure and presentation of a pitch
- Insight from the investor perspective

At the end of Pitchfest, companies will be able to better prepare an investor pitch and be more confident in delivery of their ‘story’.
