Investing in Creative Innovation – Pitch Showcase

Join us for an evening of investor networking and hearing from a curated group of creative tech innovators!

We are delighted to be presenting the next Investing in Creative Innovation pitch event as part of the 2022-23 Creative Enterprise Evolve programme.

From the explosive opportunities in games, immersive tech, and visual effects, to pinpointing the thriving innovations offered by interactive entertainment, high-end TV, and content production – UKBAA, Creative England and the British Film Institute are thrilled to invite investors to hear from a curated group of creative innovators pitching for investment.

Investors are invited to join us for an evening of exciting pitches featuring 7 highly innovative founders from start-up to scale-up pitching for investment in their creative-focused businesses. After each 5-minute pitch, investors will be invited to engage in a live Q&A with the presenting businesses to delve deeper into their exciting business propositions. Once we have wrapped up all the pitches, we’ll shift into networking mode and enjoy drinks and nibbles as were celebrate the high-growth potential of the sector. 

This event is taking place at the ever-fitting British Film Institute South Bank, offering the perfect backdrop to an evening spotlighting creative innovation.
