Pioneering Entrepreneurship

This is a pitching competition for business owners at all stages who want to compete to win £1,000.


On the run up to Elevator’s 'Making it Happen' Conference on the 3rd November 2017, Elevator, Aramco and Business Gateway will host a video pitch competition. 

‘Making Your Pitch HAPPEN’ invites any business idea, start-up or existing business operating in Aberdeen city or shire to submit a 60-second video pitch to be considered to win £1000 cash prize for their business. 

Judges will select the top 5 pitches from those submitted.  

At the Elevator Conference 2017, we will invite these top 5 pitches to pitch for 2 minutes on stage in front of 420 people, and a panel of judges who will decide the ultimate pitching winner. 

The 5 finalists are competing to win a cash prize of £1000 to help bring their dream a reality or support their business.
