On Wednesday, Crowdcube announced it has joined forces with The Pitch as its Investment Expert Partner. The UK-based equity crowdfunding platform reported it will run investment readiness classes at The Pitch’s boot camps, along with sharing “learnings” about crowdfunding, work with angel investors and VCs, and support The Pitch with investment-related educational content.
According to Crowdcube, The Pitch is one of the UK’s biggest and most exciting events that showcase’s Britain’s best startups. The competition notably includes free bootcamps and other support for founders, and finalists gain invaluable exposure – with the winner receiving a prize packaged centered around mentoring support. The Pitch’s events also give founders an opportunity to network with peers and gain validation and confidence, as well as the opportunity to gain support in the critical areas of business success: sales, marketing, finance, technology and legal practices. As part of its partnership with The Pitch, Crowdcube revealed:
“For The Pitch contestants, who will receive invaluable insight and feedback from coaches and mentors throughout the process, listing on Crowdcube is a natural progression to raise investment and brand awareness. It’s great to be a part of this journey with hundreds of founders across the UK – helping them get ready for their next stage of growth!”
The Pitch founders, Yuiwin Tsang and Chris Goodfellow, added:
“Crowdcube has helped over 600 businesses raise funding and is the UK’s leading seed-stage investor – so we’re incredibly excited to welcome the team as The Pitch’s Investment Expert Partner. Crowdcube understand the journey startups need to accelerate: from launch to validation, to traction and growth. They know this because they’re on that journey now, just a few steps ahead of our contestants – which is what makes this partnership so exciting as Crowdcube will share both their expertise and their experience.”
