Join us on Wednesday May 26th for the Oxford final of IMAGINE IF! 2020-21 where start-up teams supported by the programme will be pitching to an investor panel of judges and showcasing their innovations. The local Final represents the culmination of the IMAGINE IF! programme of workshops and bespoke mentorship.

This event is a perfect opportunity for audience members to witness and support the innovative talent of the Oxford region and to gain insights into the local start-up ecosystem, as well as to learn about the contributions of the Innovation Forum to this ecosystem. We encourage anyone with a keen interest in science and business to attend this event.

Subject to local COVID restrictions we hope to have start-ups pitching live with the virtual audience able to join via Zoom (link to be distributed in a follow-up email).
