The NACUE team had the honour of attending the Tata Reception at London's Science Museum yesterday alongside the brilliant Varsity Pitch finalists.
(Thanks to Tata for the picture)
The inaugural event celebrated and showcased Tata's companies in Europe (such as Tetley Tea and Jaguar Land Rover) and provided an invaluable opportunity for our Varsity Pitch finalists to practice their pitches.
With one minute to pitch and three minutes of grilling from the judges, the pressure was on as the finalists strived to impress the experienced Tata panel. These were Yogesh Chauhan, Tata Consultancy Services; Tim Morris, Tata Steel; Will Chadwick, Tata Interactive Services and Siddhartha Buthalia, Taj Hotels & Resorts.
Before the pitchers took to the stage, we had the pleasure of listening to speeches from the Rt.Hon Vince Cable and Dr David Landsman OBE, Tata's Executive Director.
The finalists now have a bootcamp to look forward to before the final on November 21st during Global Entrepreneurship Week.
