Our Investment Focus

Pitch NYC


Introducing New York’s top investors to the UK’s very best emerging tech firms


Taking place on Wednesday, 11 November 2015 ​in New York, P​itch NYC,​will feature 10 top UK emerging technology firms pitching for investment to grow their business, primarily in the US market.


UK firms are on target to secure $3bn of investment in 2015, double the 2014 total with the majority of investments made by US­based investors. Yet, there is a lack of follow­on funding available in the UK.


Pitch NYC provides a unique opportunity for US investors to meet these highly investable UK businesses for angel investors, venture capital and corporate investors.


The session includes company pitches, demo showcase and opportunities for 1:1 meetings followed by a networking reception. This builds on two previous sessions h​osted at Fried Frank​and during the M​ayor of London’s Fintech Mission​hosted at JPMorgan.


Companies that apply to present at Pitch NYC are selected by an expert panel. To qualify they will have already raised $1m+ investment or have an equivalent turnover, with plans to rapidly grow their US business.


Each company will receive a tailored Investment Readiness Bootcamp including legal, financial, market entry and intensive pitch practice prior to taking part in Pitch NYC. A detailed investor lookbook will be produced and circulated to Pitch NYC delegates in advance.
