Why Apply to Pitch?

Mayor of London’s TechInvest Programme is an exclusive event series supported by the Mayor of London, in partnership with UK Business Angels Association. This four-year London-based series will showcase the Capital as a global hub for tech innovation by inviting London’s most ground-breaking tech entrepreneurs to pitch their businesses to industry leading investors. With five events per year, each focuses on a specific tech sector, drawing in the best start-up, early stage or scaling businesses to be showcased. From our competition series, an expert judging panel will pinpoint businesses with the strongest potential to scale and contribute to elevating London’s global tech-sector.

Each event runs with a competition series wherein we seek to identify the most innovative businesses in the sector we are highlighting. All businesses will be given the opportunity to apply and our esteemed panel of judges representing industry experts and leading sector investors will select the 8-10 groundbreaking businesses to pitch for investment. 

  • All businesses selected will be asked to tentatively hold some time in their diary for a 1-hour pitch rehearsal session with UKBAA
  • The top 10 businesses selected will deliver a 5-minute pitch at an exclusive location in London
  • Each businesses will be given the opportunity to network and meet with the investor audience following their pitch in an exclusive networking session
  • The 10 TechInvest presenting businesses will be given exclusive access to UKBAA’s member-only investor DealShare platform, a marketplace for listing your investment proposition, providing extensive profile to the early stage investment community
