Pitching event for Essex businesses looking for investment

Budding innovators are being offered the opportunity to bid for funding to progress their ground-breaking business ideas through a Dragon’s Den-style pitching event later this month.

Over £160,000 is available and applicants will need to persuade the judges their highly innovative idea is worth investing in. Additional funding may also be available for some lucky contestants.

Organised by the University of Essex jointly with Barclays Eagle Labs, the event will take place on Zoom on Tuesday May 25.

To take part, all applicants must be Essex based and need to be registered by the Tuesday May 11 deadline, with the Angels@Essex platform – which matches potential investors with businesses needing investment to grow. Applications should be sent to UEZ@essex.ac.uk
