The Landing, MediaCityUK’s digital and technology enterprise hub, has announced a new angel investment ‘pitch panel’.

From July, scale-ups and SMEs accepted on to The Landing’s three-month business incubator programmes will also get the chance to meet and pitch to a group of venture capitalists, angel investors and investment consortiums.

The Landing launches mentoring scheme to scale up tech firms

The pitch panel event will give participating companies the chance to share their fully-formed business concepts, growth projections and prototype technologies with potential investors.

The Landing has teamed up with the Barclays-sponsored Eagle Lab team to create a dinner and drinks format for the quarterly pitch panel events.

Shu-Ling Li, Community Manager for The Landing’s Launch co-working space, said: “The recent dinner and drinks event we hosted saw a handful of Landing-based companies do a quick two-minute pitch to a group of leading investment angels between courses and were such a great success that we have decided to make it officially part of the Launch incubator offer.

“It will give scale-ups based at Launch the chance to put into practice all they have learned from the intensive scale-up and business support programme we provide in friendly surroundings. They can also then continue to network with potential investors, and The Landing’s wider business support team, in a very relaxed environment.
