This event will be livestreamed.

At Lion’s Den, USB entrepreneurs get the chance to pitch their business ideas in the den to a panel of investors – our lions. Contestants have gained exposure to pitch coaching through insights from an experienced Venturepreneur, and stand a chance to receive business development incentives for best pitch.

Incentives on offer (confirmed at the time of publishing):

  • 3-month mentorship with investors at Stocks & Strauss
  • 6-month membership to the LaunchLab Startup incubation programme
  • A legal advisory programme with O’Reilly Law
  • Business advisory and management consulting programmes with House of Growth
  • Access to startup incubation resources
  • An opportunity for investment from Lions on the panel and in the audience

Join us to gain incredible insight into the structure of a pitch and what investors look for.

Let’s think. Let’s connect. Let’s work.
