- This event has passed.
IoD Oxfordshire and Enterprising Oxford proudly present five innovative new technology start-ups from the University of Oxford’s BioEscalator at a new event aimed at marrying the business skills of IoD members with new companies being curated by the university that are in need of business knowledge and support.
Called Pitching for Support, it is hoped that this is the first in a series of events giving the different disciplines from across the University the chance to showcase their embryonic businesses and pitch for the support in terms of skills that they need to help them on their journey. The event will take the form of 5 ten minute pitches followed by networking and one-to-ones where you can meet the founders and explore their needs.
This is not a fund raising event rather it is a pitch for skills, the companies expect that if support is secured it will be on a remunerated basis to be agreed between the parties post the event. Typical support needed will be legal, go to market planning, finance, fundraising, marketing, project management through to NED/ advisory roles.
This is an exciting opportunity to be exposed to some of the most cutting edge ideas and a chance to support and help them on their journey. Please join us on what will be an interesting and motivating evening. Space is limited to 40 guests so please book early to ensure your place. More details about the pitching companies will be shared in the coming weeks.
