Pitchfest 2018 – Investment Readiness Workshop

February 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Venturefest South – Pitchfest 2018 – Investment Readiness Workshop

Facilitated by Richard Cooper – Oxford Innovation and the Innovate2Succeed programme

This workshop is primarily for those wanting to pitch for investment at Venturefest South 2018 on Thursday 1st March at Winchester Guildhall. However, all are welcome…and indeed you may even convince yourself to pitch at the main event!

Last year we had 17 companies pitch for over £20m combined ‘ask’. A quote from one:

“TrustonTap pitched at Venturefest South 2017, seeking investment to grow our innovative care business. After the main pitch event, we were approached by several investors and found ourselves overfunded for our investment round. The structure of the event worked well for us and we were impressed by the strength of the businesses pitching for investment as well as the quality of the investors attending. I would strongly recommend it to both entrepreneurs and investors in the region.”

So sign up now for this free workshop.


  • Think like an investor
  • The investment Process
  • The importance of the emotional hook.
  • Perfect your pitch
  • The most common pitfalls of a pitch
  • Q&A

Richard will be available after the workshop for any specific follow-up items to help you prepare to pitch. He can give even more support to those subscribing/ want to sign up to the Innovate2Succeed free 50hrs of coaching programme.

We look forward to meeting you.

This is a #VFS18 Rumble event. All attendees will given a sponsored ticket to Venturefest South annual conference on 1st March 2018 – worth £30 per ticket. #VFS2018 ticket codes will be given out at workshop.
