We were delighted to support and judge The University of Hull’s ‘Starting a New Business’ Pitching Competition this April at The Business School, along with WJ Components and Savvy Goat.
10 teams of 2nd and 3rd Year Undergraduates, who have been working on a semester-long project were pitted against each other to present 15 minute business pitches to introduce their concepts and business plans.
Judges were looking for innovation, well considered assumptions and a good understanding of the financial elements of setting up an enterprise from scratch.
It was a very close run competition, with some excellent presentations. The range of ideas was impressive!
Winners, Smooth Smoothies impressed the judges with their ideas of innovating the smoothie drink to a whole new level! (No spoilers!)
