How it worked
Applicants applied online with details of business growth idea. All applications were assessed and 12 semi finalists selected to prepare a pitch for judges.
Semi finalists participated in tailored workshops and individual coaching to prepare and deliver a pitch that tells their story and delights judges and audience.
Semi finalists competed in a shark-tank style competition to deliver a 5 minute pitch followed by a Q&A session with the judging panel. Six finalists were selected to deliver their pitch to a dinner of 100 business leaders and win prize money to kick start their idea.
