SETsquared Bristol’s free #Idea2Pitch workshop for tech entrepreneurs is returning on 10th November at Engine Shed as part of Bristol Technology Festival.

#Idea2Pitch is a chance for novice entrepreneurs to explore the viability of a new business idea, or an opportunity for early stage companies to enhance and hone their skills before approaching investors.

This event includes a workshop on what makes a good business idea and elevator pitch training from the award winning incubator’s expert business advisors. To date #Idea2Pitch has helped 95 startups to distil their business messaging into an impactful one-minute pitch and practice it with supportive peers.

Konstantina Psoma, Co-founder and CEO of Kaedim, a University of Bristol student startup that uses AI to create digital assets in less than 3 seconds, attended the #Idea2Pitch workshop in March 2020. Following the workshop, Konstantina won the University of Bristol’s New Enterprise Competition scooping £10,000 and a 12-month membership to SETsquared Bristol to work towards commercialising their product.

Konstantina said:

“Having studied Innovation at the University of Bristol and having pitched what felt like 100 times in the past, I had the feeling that I wouldn’t have much to learn from it. I could not have been more wrong!

SETsquared’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence taught us how to create a memorable elevator pitch that is simple to understand and easy to deliver anywhere, anytime. I learned that the goal of a pitch should be to get to the next stage with your audience and that the ask should always be crystal clear.”

Steve Edwards, Centre Director, said:

“This is the ninth #Idea2Pitch event we’ve delivered since 2016 and it’s wonderful to see the businesses we’ve helped achieve success with our support. Our #Idea2Pitch events are designed to make it easy and accessible for early stage tech entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to maximise their potential by tapping into our incredibly supportive and world-class business coaching, in a great environment and for free!”
