UKTI Speed Pitching Showcases: Meet the best of UK Technology

Date: 22nd June 2016

Location: IFB 2016, Exhibition Centre, Liverpool

The UK is a world leader in innovation, creativity and cutting-edge technology from fintech and digital to life sciences; UK innovation is world class. Talent is being uncovered and nurtured across the country to support ground-breaking technologies and services that are keeping the UK at the forefront of the global technological revolution. At UKTI, we recognise the important role that UK Government plays in connecting global investors with the best of what the UK has to offer. This is precisely what the Venture Capital Unit was set up to do.

About the day

This speed pitching event organised by the Venture Capital Unit (VCU) at UK Trade & Investment will give investors the opportunity to hear from several high calibre, high tech UK businesses seeking VC funding. During this event, the best of UK innovation will be showcased to CVCs and VC funds.

Attending companies will come from two of the sectors in which the UK excels: fintech and physical sciences. They will each give 6-8 minute elevator pitches followed by a Q&A session. There will also be an opportunity for investors to network.
