The Process

Briefing Session

14th January 2021 10:00 to 11:30 hrs

We cover the format of the pitch event plus a refresher on what investors are looking for and what makes for a good pitch. Only the highest quality pitches will make it through to the pitch event, so the briefing session is a critical part of the preparation.

Selection Day

21st January 2021 09:00 to 17:00 hrs

You get to pitch to a panel of seasoned business professionals and investors, who will rate your pitch in terms of “investability”, content, presentation style and overall quality. Only the very best pitches will make it through to pitch day. If you don’t make the grade, you are automatically eligible for our next investor-readiness training session, which is offered free of charge to applicants.

Pitch Day

28th January 2021 15:00 to 18:30 hrs

A maximum of 10 companies will get the opportunity to pitch in sequence to our virtual room of investors. It’s a seven minute pitch plus seven minutes for Q&A moderated by our host, Ian Tracey from Anchored In. Each session will be recorded and made available for download for your records and for publicity purposes via the GTM Global ecosystem.


Post event

You will have some idea of the level of interest in your proposition on the day but the GTM team will liaise with investors to ensure follow-up connections are made and all opportunities progressed. Should you wish to spread the net beyond the pitch day investor group, we can also give you access to our exclusive private investor network.
