Disruptive Tech TV, part of Compare the Cloud, are currently accepting applicants from Disruptive UK technology companies and startups to pitch their businesses in the forthcoming episodes of its new monthly show filming Nov, Dec and Jan in Central London, Disruptive Pitch. The next episode is the 22nd November with slots still available.
Having aired the first episode online in October with over 12,000 viewers, the show will continue to be released once a month for the next six months. Each episode will put ten 3 minute pitches up against four expert judges looking for the next UK disruptive technology. The finalists from each round will then present for the final show and battle it out to become the One Pitch. The final show will take place at Cloud Expo 2017 and includes the opportunity for a keynote.
Contestants thus far have included security software, artificial intelligence, cloud technologies with virtual & augmented reality and apps in future shows.
“There is a trend that many pioneering companies and startups struggle when trying to create exposure for their businesses.” said Andrew McLean, producer of Disruptive Pitch. “we launched Disruptive Pitch to shed light and support disruptive technology organisations as they emerge. The program provides viewers with an enlightening and entertaining glimpse into the tech industry by way of the charismatic judges and innovating business pitches.”
The winners of each episode will advance to the final round where they will compete for the ultimate prize: a chance to keynote at the Cloud Expo Europe 2017 at ExCeL in London. All applicants will have the opportunity to network with major technology vendors and partners before and after the scheduled event.
“We are extremely excited to be a part of Disruptive Pitch 2016, having participated in the first episode. Genuine innovation makes a real splash, and the opportunity to pitch to Disruptive TV’s audience has been fantastic in getting the word out about Torsion Information Security.” said Peter Bradley, Founder & CEO, Torsion Information Security. “We’re very much looking forward to the next round.”
The first episode, released last month, is available here: https://www.disruptivetech.tv/disruptivepitch/ with other details here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6198948/ and garnered around 12,000 viewers on its release.
“No PowerPoint,” added Andrew McLean. “We’re looking for people to explain their technology as they would to a client. Their success on the show will be judged based on whether or not they can adequately communicate the benefit and USP’s of their business in three minutes. As the show progresses we will work with each finalist to perfect their pitches for the final show”.
