I'M INTERESTED IN SPONSORING THE STARTUP INVESTOR PITCH COMPETITION @ THE UK FOOD & DRINK EXPO 2024, SIGN ME UP!

The “UK Food & DrinksStartup Investor Pitch Competition" is co-produced by Pitch Lounge, Marketing Strategiser, & the UK Food & Drink Expo.

 

The Expo is taking place between 29th April to 1st May 2024 at the NEC, Birmingham at the Grocers Live Stage.

Sponsor our event to receive significant online exposure, in-person panelist & speaker slots, and introduction to exciting F&B startup business and investment opportunities. Gold and Silver sponsors secure a 10-min speaker slot, and Bronze sponsors still receive the digital and in-event promotional package. See below for details.

Fundraising startups will present live to local and international investors and be showcased online to community members of all the event partners, including your company. We can also connect sponsors with the applying and shortlisted startups, and involve you in the shortlisting process if you so wish. We are receiving high interest from quality startups and aim to shortlist the best eight.

If you also wish to secure exposure as a pitch event panelist and have the opportunity to ask the startups questions live during the pitch event in a short Q&A round immediately following each pitch, then apply to be a panelist (or simply express interest on the adjacent form to the right).

Apply now to sponsor the “Startup Investor Pitch Competition - The UK Food & Drink Expo”, and secure online exposure, in-person platform and connection to F&B startups, and further opportunities.
