Was Venturefest Bristol a success?

The answer is a resounding YES

Alan Cottle was invited to represent Pegasus Funding Resources as one of the specialists on the panel for “The Pitch” which was part of Venturefest Bristol held on 3 November.
Venturefest Bristol was held at the recently opened Bristol and Bath Science Park and the event was a huge success. Over 40 businesses exhibited in the innovation showcase and a sell out 700 delegates attended.

During “The Pitch” ideas were pitched to the specialist panel of investors, businesses advisors and an open audience of Venturefest participants. There were 25 “pitches” to the expert panel which ranged from a group of students with a good idea through start up companies to businesses already trading and looking for growth. The specialists panel members gave their feedback to the presenters of a fascinating array of business ideas, including alleviating bed sores, dental equipment, 3d 360 degree photography etc.

There was a great buzz in the exhibition hall where 68 stands accommodated the innovation showcase and the Business Support exhibition and there was plenty of networking going on between old contacts and delegates making new ones. The workshop sessions were well attended as entrepreneurs and experts shared their experience and knowledge

Pegasus Funding Resources look forward to being involved in Venturefest Bristol again next year and if you want to attend the event you will need to register early to avoid being turned away as happened to some this year!
