4 entrepreneurs will pitch their projects to the local community. This is a great opportunity to raise the profile of your venture, as well as to gain financial and or/non-financial investment and support. Our criteria for choosing ventures to pitch:
  • enterprise is ethical, sustainable and appropriately local
  • enterprise helps address our local response to the climate emergency
  • demonstrates competence through business plan and/or track record
  • business model does not rely on donations or grant funding
  • 'investment' required would allow venture to 'get to the next level' - investment could be financial and/or non-financial
  • contributes to the long-term resilience of the community
