Time to pitch to our panel!
Following the afternoon workshop our entrepreneurs were ready to pitch!
Nikita Thakrar (chair) – leads the Imperial Create Lab Programme
Nick Howe – Business Enterprise Manager at Natwest
Kate Newhouse – Chief Executive Officer at Blenheim Chalcot
Chris Corbishley – Investor at Forward Partners

Our panel struggled to decide between two of our business- so the prize was jointly awarded to OHNE and 2080 with a Highly commended to DanceWest. The winning teams will share, a cash prize, mentoring from Natwest and Coaching from Imperial Enterprise Lab. All of our entrepreneurs went home with new business contacts and useful tips to further their businesses, as well as the skills they learnt in the workshop.
The transformation in all of our pitches was incredible. Throughout the day all are entrepreneurs grew in confidence and delivered a dynamic attention-grabbing pitch for the panel and the audience!
A BIG thank you to our Expert panel, Sarah Archer for delivering the workshop, all our entrepreneurs, Imperial College and Natwest for contributing prizes and Hucklestree West for hosting the event!
