Pitch & Judge

Pitch and Judge event.

Pitch & Judge is an opportunity for Accelerate Cambridge entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas to an audience made up of their peers, Coaches, Mentors and the wider business community. It's a great forum for entrepreneurs to practice their pitches and for audiences to learn more about the ventures on the Accelerate Cambridge programme.

Pitch & Judge takes place 17:15-18:30, and is followed by networking drinks online.

Pitch of the night winner

Pitch & Judge - what a excellent event. A thoroughly enjoyable and useful experience. Its fantastic that Cambridge-based entrepreneurs are given this opportunity to test their pitches against a team of experienced mentors and coaches who don't pack their punches, but at the same time deliver honest and invaluable feedback. Thanks to all involved - the mentors, coaches and my fellow pitchers.

Botprobe develops hardware and software tools to enhance homeworkers cyber security. This is particularly pertinent right now as we start to come out of lockdown. Businesses are just starting to discover the benefits of homeworking, and it is highly probably that many people may never return to being full-time office based. Since lockdown, cyberattacks have increased considerably as homeworker IT security can be far inferior to the corporate networks they are connecting to. Loss of information from a cyber attack can have a detrimental impact on a company's reputation as well as leaving the employees shaken. Commercialising our technology means we can deliver higher levels of protection at a much more affordable price point than many other solutions available today.
