* Pitch & Judge is an opportunity for Accelerate Cambridge entrepreneurs to pitch their business ideas to an audience made up of their peers, mentors and the wider business community. It's a great forum for entrepreneurs to practice pitches and for audiences to learn more about the ventures on the Accelerate Cambridge programme. Pitch & Judge takes place at Cambridge Judge Business School, and is followed by networking at Browns Cambridge.
