Calling all established North Tyneside Businesses…

We’re inviting Business Forum members to take part in POWER PITCHING, a panel based competition and win the opportunity to pitch in front of a specially selected panel of business leaders.

We’re inviting applications for 4 businesses to pitch their business to an experienced panel and Forum members on Tuesday 16th July at Town Hall Chambers, Wallsend.

FREE opportunity to meet a range of leading entrepreneurs and investors

The panel will include the director or a business which knows all about power pitching after being successful on a hit TV show, a director of one of the regions leading early stage investment companies, and the regional marketing manager for an online business news service.

FREE opportunity to raise your business profile throughout North Tyneside

Successful businesses will pitch their growth plans to the panel and to an audience of local & regional businesses followed by a question and answer session for the panel and audience.

In return to those pitching there is a unique opportunity up for grabs for the winner including a consultation with a highly respected panel member – you can choose! and the chance to meet some of the region’s best-connected investment professionals who will give you advice and guidance for your business. Plus significant PR opportunities and a slot on Radio’s Northumberland’s brand new Business Forum radio show.

FREE opportunity to network with other local businesses

For those businesses who don’t wish to pitch at the event, audience members will be treated to a talk from successful entrepreneur Andy Dixon at Oatein, and hear from Regional Digital Media Manager at Bdaily on winning over the media with that “power pitch”. 

There’ll also be plenty of opportunity for networking with the panel, fellow Forum members and the businesses which are pitching.



So if you’d like to showcase your business, you’ll have to have been trading for over a year, be a Forum member, be prepared to pitch your business and record a one-minute video which will be shown on social media. Application form below.
