Pitch Clinic
Smart Factory Expo's Startup Competition
Startup Pitch Clinic
Building on the success of the last 3 year’s of the Hack and Pitch competition, in 2019, Smart Factory Expo is expanding and we are launching Pitch Clinic, a brand-new pitch competition for startups.

The new competition format invites startup businesses to pitch their products directly to potential industry buyers and investors. A judging panel of industry experts will determine the competition winners, who will enjoy fantastic prizes as well as a package of promotional activities from The Manufacturer.

Pitch Clinic will take place on day two of Smart Factory Expo (14 November, 2019) so be sure to come along to listen to some of the most exciting new ideas and innovations in British industry. Want to enter? Read on.
Presentations for the Pitch Clinic will be 3-4 minutes with 1 additional minute of questions from the judges. No extra time will be given. You can use a Powerpoint Presentation or similar.

A shortlist of presenters will be invited back to the final to see who will be crowned the 2019 Smart Factory Expo Pitch Clinic Champion. Final presentations will be 5-7 minutes with up to 3 minutes of questions.

Who Should Nominate:
Any startup manufacturer or any startup targeting UK manufacturing as a key customer segment. Only companies with annual revenues of less than £1m will be accepted.

Why Enter:
The Smart Factory Expo Pitch Clinic will provide an unparalleled opportunity to present to potential customers, investors and industry experts to not only drive new opportunities but also to obtain valuable insights on your product and business.

A variety of prizes will be available for the first, second and third placed pitches. More details to come.
