Our virtual pitch events are delivered by NorthInvest and GC Angels. Every quarter, 6 start-ups are invited to pitch to their combined networks of investors and funding partners at a virtual pitch event facilitated by Fund Her North.
This event is open to the public to encourage more entrepreneurs to apply for funding.
Please note, there is a 5% plus VAT investment success fee applicable to start-ups who successfully raise as a result of a Fund Her North pitch event.
