You have a winning product or service, a killer business strategy, an exceptional team… and now you need investment to move your business to realise greater aims. How can you assure that when you have the opportunity to speak to ‘business angels’ and investors your content and delivery stand out enough to have them fund you?
By participating in The NextWomen’s Pitch Event, as either a guest or pitch-entrepreneur, you can get closer to perfecting your pitch monologue and have engaging dialogues with investors who may be in a position to offer capital to support business growth.

KJ: In a past life I was a commercial lawyer, advising clients ranging from startups to multinational corporations on commercial, contract, advertising and IP issues. I enjoyed the work, loved my boss but in terms of my vision for the future, as the months ticked by I found that I never aspired to be a partner in that organisation.

A brief introduction: I'm Alyssa, and since January of this year I've been working with The NextWomen interning as an editorial assistant. I've had the opportunity to immerse myself in this wonderful community and, most recently, had the pleasure of attending the NextWomen pitching event in London on 30th April.
It was an evening of firsts: For some pitchpreneurs it was their first experience pitching and for some guests (including myself) it was an introduction to events of this kind. Filled with enthusiasm at making my début in the NextWomen community, I headed to the venue (beautiful offices over looking St Pauls Cathedral, provided by our sponsor, Orrick) early in order to see the workshop which preceeded the evening event.
