Team Anorak pitches

Last week, we were lucky enough to reach the regional heats of The Pitch 2010. Five budding business were picked from thousands of applicants to pitch their ideas to three very scary judges with the hope of reaching the grand final. These were Doug Richard (from Dragons Den), Julie Meyer (big time entrepreneur) and Helen Stevenson (Chief Marketing Officer at Yell). So, after a few rehearsals and a few deep breaths, Laurie and Stuart hit the stage. Here’s photos and the live Twitter feed from the day.

Off they go

The products sit tight

Live Twitterings keep the office enthralled

The judges loved our brand, loved our products and gave some great feedback. But alas, we didn’t quite win, coming second on the day. Nonetheless, it was an amazing experience and we made some brilliant contacts along the way. Plus, there’s also a wild card round where the public can vote for one more finalist (hint hint). More on that to follow.
