Intro: The Pitch Clinic

This year, The Manufacturer and Smart Factory Expo are excited to announce the launch of a new pitch competition for budding startup ventures operating in the digital manufacturing space.
Building on the success of the last 3 year’s of the Hack and Pitch competition, in 2019, Smart Factory Expo is expanding its offering to startups and we are launching the brand-new Pitch Clinic.
The new competition format invites startup businesses to pitch own products directly to potential industry buyers as well as investors. A judging panel of industry experts will determine the winners who will enjoy fantastic prizes as well as a package of promotional activities from The Manufacturer.

The Pitch Clinic will take place on day 2 of Smart Factory Expo (14 November, 2019) so be sure to come along to listen to some of the most exciting new innovations in the industrial space.
The Manufacturer’s Director of International Strategy, Tim Brown, will emcee the event and says he’s tremendously excited to hear what the startup eco-system has to offer.
“Whenever you provide a platform for the up and coming businesses of tomorrow to showcase their wares, you have the opportunity to hear from the next big thing. Or, potentially find a solution to a problem you’ve frustrated by due to a prior lack of innovation.
“The UK startup space is full of exciting new developments that we’ve seen line Innovation Alley at Smart Factory Expo for the last couple of years. Now we’ll get to hear from even more of them as we thrust the best new businesses and ideas forward into the spotlight. Personally I can’t wait.”
The Pitch Clinic will take place on 14 November at Smart Factory Expo at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, UK. Nominations are now open until 15 October, 2019.
