On Saturday 12th March, we welcomed the finalists of our New Ventures and Fresh Ideas competitions to The Melting Pot in Edinburgh for Judging Day! It was an exciting day, full of pitching with finalists giving a five-minute presentation followed by ten minutes of Q&A.
A huge thank you to our two panels of judges who had difficult decisions to make as the standard of pitches were so high. The Fresh Ideas panel was made up of experienced advisors from The Big Partnership, Johnston Carmichael: Chartered Accountants andMark and Clerks LLP.
Our New Ventures finalists pitched to a panel of four esteemed judges from Bank of Scotland (sponsors of New Ventures), Scottish Enterprise, Harper Macleod LLP and Enterprise Campus (sponsors of New Ventures, PG Ventures Category).
The winners of both competitions will be announced at the SIE Student Enterprise Summit 2016 on the 23rd of March in Edinburgh. If you’d like to join us on the day, you can purchase a ticket here.
