Bread & Jam Festival
Bread & Jam Festival ticket holders can apply in advance to pitch their burgeoning business to an 4-strong panel including Distill Ventures, Yeo Valley, Pembroke VCT and Bran Investments, all of whom are looking for the next big ideas. The investors will choose a selection of brands that interest them most, and offer a round robin of 10 minute face-to-face meetings in the Pitching Zone. Delegates need to bring their best elevator pitch, business plan summary and company valuation for the chance to impress as many investors as they can, as each start-up can potentially win a full 1 hour’s presentation meeting at their offices and, the chance of an injection of cash into the brand.
