Ten digital companies are to be invited to pitch their companies at 10 Downing Street.
The ‘Pitch 10’ event will bring together startups and 70 investors, financiers and corporate partners to the Prime Minister’s home on July 10th.
Why the event has been announced 8 days before the pitch remains unclear, but this is a fantastic opportunity for all startups.
Update: Applications are now closed but it has been confirmed that the event will be going ahead.
A statement on the website explains:
No 10 Downing Street is incredibly proud of the levels of innovation and success of digital startups and enterprise in Britain.
In an effort to bring more well-deserved attention to the sector and companies involved, it is hosting a showcase of 10 of the most promising companies in Britain on Thursday 10th July 2014.
