We are searching for the most innovative and exciting businesses in Wales with The Pitch 2017 which is sponsored by Cardiff Council in partnership with Big Ideas Wales.

Now it could be your turn to take your business to the next level with plenty of advice, mentoring and support on hand for the winners.

There will be two categories businesses can enter, the start-ups which is a category for those who are in the early stages of business, and growth – those businesses that have big potential and are ready to take it to the next level. Entrants can be any age. Winners will receive:

– Introbiz Gold package (worth £1,899)
– Monthly networking training provided by Tracey Smolinski
– Monthly social media and marketing training provided by Paul Smolinski
– Mentoring sessions provided by founder Lyndon Wood, and founder Hayley Parsons
– Website provided by Sunzu
– Initial PR planning support and monthly PR support provided by Technical Marketing & PR

The winners will also be presented with a trophy on the main stage at the Introbiz Expo held at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on Thursday, 2nd November 2017.

You may be wondering how it all works. Well, you’re invited to send a 2-minute video of your pitch to us here at Introbiz where 5 lucky semi-finalists will be chosen to present their pitch live on the main stage at the Introbiz Expo.

These judges will be the owners of long-established businesses, and together, they’ll have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to running a successful business. The judges will then choose five finalists who’ll then share their pitches on the day of the Introbiz Expo, held on Thursday, 2nd November at the Motorpoint Arena in the centre of Cardiff.

The judges’ line-up is as follows (more judges will be revealed shortly) Click on the banner below to find out more:
