Important Update

Please note, there might be possible route diversions to keep in mind due to some of the Extinction Rebellion protests going on in central London. Transport for London should have in-time updates for you if needed.

The Royal Academy of Engineering’s Enterprise Hub invites technology and engineering entrepreneurs to our Reverse Pitching event. This annual event gives entrepreneurs a chance to turn the tables and put the investors in the hot seat. 

Investors and funders from various stages of raising capital take the stage to deliver a ‘reverse pitch’. The aim of the event is to demystify the process of fundraising and connect entrepreneurs into the various financing networks, as well as give investors the opportunity to explain their processes and target sectors.

If you are a tech or engineering startup or SME looking for funding, this is the event for you. Investors who would like to meet Enterprise Hub members and outside entrepreneurs are also welcome to join.

Confirmed investors: Octopus VC, Innovate UK, Business Growth Fund, Rockspring, UK Innovation Science & Seed Fund, Mercia, Cambridge Angels, Playfair Capital, Stanley Ventures, Kero Group, NIHR, and Beacon Capital.
