Applications now open for KTN's Industrial Biotechnology Showcase Pitch Event

Posted on: 15/01/2020

KTNs Industrial Biotechnology and Access to Funding and Finance Teams are joining up with Keltie LLP to host this event on 22 April in London.

If you are a startup or early stage Industrial Biotechnology business looking to increase your profile, this is the right opportunity for you. The event, open to UK spinouts and start-ups seeking investment (seed through to post revenue), will provide a great opportunity to pitch your product/service to investors, discuss your business and take crucial steps towards getting the funding your company needs.


KTN experts will help you prepare your pitch in the run-up to the event. There will be two workshops in London (Tuesday 3 March and Tuesday 17 March) to help businesses develop their pitch and investment proposition before the selection day (26 March).


Applicants must attend the selection event, where they will pitch their investment opportunity to a friendly panel which will select those companies it wishes to put forward to the Showcase event. At the showcase event (Wednesday 22 April) the finalists will give a live pitch to a panel of specialist investors and judges at an evening reception (5pm – 8.30 pm).


More experienced entrepreneurs and companies who have had pitch-training can apply to pitch directly at the selection day.


APPLY HERE to attend the pitch training and/or selection day. Application deadline 24 February 2020.


Please contact Dana Heldt  if you have any further questions.
