KTN Pitch Event

KTN and two BBSRC Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy – CBMNet (Crossing Biological Membranes Network) and BIOCATNET (Biocatalyst Discovery, Development, and Scale-up) – are joining forces to provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs with start-up, early stage and growth businesses to increase their profile in front of a national audience of investors. The Industrial Biotechnology Showcase and Pitch Event will take place on Tuesday 12th June 2018 in London.

IBBE spin-outs and start-ups can apply to take part in this event, which will provide a great opportunity to meet investors, discuss your business and hopefully take some steps towards getting the funding your company needs.

KTN experts  will help you prepare your pitch in the run-up to the event to ensure that you know exactly what to say and how to say it.

The opportunity includes:

  • Live pitching to engaged specialist investors who are interested in investing in IBBE products and processes
  • Funded pitch training*
  • Raising your company profile at a high-profile event

* KTN will deliver two workshops (Tuesday 10th April and Wednesday 25th April 2018) to help the businesses develop their pitch and investment proposition before the selection day. More experienced entrepreneurs and companies who have had pitch-training can apply to pitch directly on the selection day in May. 

Applicants must attend a selection event on Thursday 17th May.  The most promising finalists will give a live pitch to a panel of specialist investors and judges on Tuesday 12th June 2018.

Interested in pitching your IBBE innovation? Apply online by 28th February 2018.
