Each startup will have three minutes to pitch their startup to an audience of creative individuals, entrepreneurs, investors, designers and academics. Delegates will then decide who gets a spot at Pitch@Palace — a pitch event at St James’s Palace hosted by HRH The Duke of York himself — with hundreds of top investors, influencers and entrepreneurs on 5 November 2014.

This is a great opportunity for startups to get exposure in front of some very influential people, with a large amount of media visibility.

This opportunity is open to any technology startup based in theUK with fewer than ten employees, have international appeal and are at their early stages  — those with VC funding will not be able to enter.
