Pitch at the Pitch Challenge

If you’ve got a great business idea or consider yourself a budding entrepreneur, you’re invited to present your pitch to a panel of five or six enthusiastic local business people at the AFC Bournemouth Vitality Stadium in June.

The panel will be made up of passionate local business people including, Lucy Cooper, Dorset Growth Hub and Nick Hixon, from Hixsons Business Advisors. Each pitch will be expected to last around 15 minutes, followed by 10 minutes for questions from the panel. There are five prizes of £1000 to be won which will be awarded at 4pm on the day.

To get involved, send a brief summary (no more than one side of A4) of your idea to careers@bournemouth.ac.uk by midday on Friday 20 May, with the subject line “Pitch at the pitch”.

Ten finalists will be invited to present their pitches at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium and successful applicants will be contacted on Friday 27 May.

For the full entry terms and conditions, please login to MyCareerHub using your BU login details.

The challenge is open to all levels and all years of BU students – so, why not get the ball rolling!

The pitch at the pitch challenge is brought you by Santander in conjunction with BU and hosted by AFC Bournemouth.
