About this Program
Pitch NYC brings together the best of the UK’s fastest-growing startups and New York’s most influential investors for pitching, showcases and demos in NYC.
Our Investment Focus
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, Pitch 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 hosted at Fried Frankand during the Mayor of London’s Fintech Missionhosted 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.
