Minerva Birmingham Pitch UP & West Midlands Venturefest
Minerva Business Angels, who are part of the University of Warwick Science Park, together with its delivery partners, Aston Centre for Growth and University of Birmingham Enterprise, is delivering the Minerva Birmingham Pitch Up final on the 28th January. Minerva Birmingham Pitch Up replaces West Midlands Pitchfest and is being run in conjunction with West Midlands Venturefest.
We have 6 finalists from a selection of 30 applicants,
During lockdown, the companies have been supported through our joint workshop programme to become investment ready and subjected to a selection investment panel consisting of angels and VC partners. We look forward to the public judging the overall two finalists on the day and seeing all of these great companies pitch for the Best Pitch Award.

Our work hasn’t stopped there, though!
The Minerva Birmingham Pitch Up partners remain active at this challenging time. Minerva Business Angels continue with its investor meeting programme and will recommence its Angel Educational webinars starting in late Spring. Our first series met with 650 attendees. These educational events focus on supporting those looking to become angel investors or looking for angel investment and are run in conjunction with our local partners Aston Centre for Growth, who deliver a flagship scale-up and SME leadership and management programmes and University of Birmingham Enterprise who supports innovators and entrepreneurs with mentoring and advice. This one example of the great partnerships Minerva enjoys with its fellow institutional partners.
