E-Club’s biannual pitching competition is tonight, so you can go whoop, cheer, and safely learn from the 6 brave pitchees. You’re sure to recognise some faces – if you’ve ever been to an event in Edinburgh before – and even our own Kate Ho will be stepping into the den. The event kicks off at 6:30pm at the Business School (7 Bristo Square), Lecture Theatre 1, and it is open to anyone in the community.
Judges will be Cameron Thomson of Angel’s Den, Patrick Andrews of ScotSkills, John Hughes of Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce (High Growth), and Scott McLennan of Santander. So it could be worth going along if you’ve been wanting to meet any of them…
Prizes are exciting, with £1000 from sponsors Santander going to one lucky contestant, and free Angel’s Den registration (usually costing £799 + VAT) being awarded as well.
