We were delighted to attend the Invest South Pitching Event last night at the Emirates Spinnaker Tower Portsmouth. The event was run as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015 and allows 6 local entrepreneurs to present their businesses to a panel of potential investors. This is a great event which gives entrepreneurs and investors a like a chance to help support entrepreneurial success in the Solent region.
Ideas on the night ranged from 3D printers large enough to print a house, to drone rotary engines to a social enterprise aiming to take bikes to those that need them in Kenya, India and the UK. It was a fantastic event run in cooperation with Entrepreneurs Unite; a Hampshire based organisation who aim to help entrepreneurs make their business aspirations a reality. boxChilli have supported Entrepreneurs Unite with a free website and marketing advice. Their continued success in 2014 / 2015 means that we have been retained to create a new more ambitious site in the future.
It was fantastic to hears some of the creative ideas and plans envisioned by the entrepreneurs on the night and is a great example of the entrepreneurial strength throughout the Solent region. We look forward to next years event.
