Melanie Oldham, founder and CEO of Bob’s Business Ltd, has successfully pitched her way to the Pitch@Palace 9.0 Boot Camp, to be held at the University of Manchester in early March.
On the 7 February the University of Huddersfield hosted one of the Pitch@Palace events, where entrepreneurs from around the UK pitched and showcased their innovative businesses to an expert panel of judges, all with the incentive of earning a place at the Pitch@Palace 9.0 Boot Camp.
The expert judging panel selected three Entrepreneurs to be fast tracked to Boot Camp; Bob’s Business, Memento and Spatialize.
Pitch@Palace was founded by The Duke of York in 2014 to promote entrepreneurship in the UK and around the world.
The aim of the Pitch@Palace is to provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to pitch their innovative business ideas in front of an influential audience from the worlds of entrepreneurship, technology, media and investment.
Melanie said: “I am delighted to have been selected to go to the Boot Camp 9.0 in March, and have the opportunity to heighten awareness of Bob’s Business, whilst gaining valuable information and support from industry experts.”
Following on from Melanie’s successful Pitch at the University of Huddersfield, she has been invited to attend the Pitch@Palace Bootcamp 9.0, along with 41 other entrepreneurs who will receive support and mentoring. All participants are asked to Pitch to a panel of Judges, who will select twelve entrepreneurs to pitch for 3 minutes at St. James’s Palace.
