After some tough deliberations, we’re thrilled to announce the Varsity Pitch Competition 2014 semi-finalists.
We received a huge number of applications this year (over double the amount of last year) and the quality of applicants made it hard to create our shortlist!
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that applied. Condensing a business idea/venture into 60 seconds is tough work! So well done to all of you that entered, you are all amazing in our eyes.
Five applicants were shortlisted from each category (excluding BIPB's category). These were:
TATA Disruptive Business:
Xero Apps and Online:
Lloyds Bank Creative Industries:
