Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Pitchfest 2019
January 30 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm
From January to March 2019 the Robotics & AI Special Interest Group with KTN’s Access to Funding and Finance team are running an Investment Readiness Programme for companies working in the field of Robotics & Artificial Intelligence.
Pitchfest is a pitching competition presenting a unique opportunity to raise the profile of early stage Robotics and Artificial Intelligence businesses in front of a national audience of investors.
It’s preceded by a dedicated Investor Readiness Programme which prepares companies for a rigorous selection step. The Investment Readiness Programme provides the skills for developing and presenting a strong business pitch to investors and possible business partners. This program targets companies looking to become investor ready, providing them with three days of training spread over a month. We will cover communication skills, and background information on the various types of funding, and insight into the investors perspective.
If selected, businesses are exposed to investment opportunities through a pitching competition where they are invited to present their ideas, pitch for investment and take part in a showcase event.
At the end of the programme, companies will be able to better prepare an investor pitch and be more confident in the delivery of their ‘story’. Companies that are successful on the selection day will pitch to a national audience of investors.
