Two entrepreneurial business events

Both at Richard Branson’s house. All in one day.

The brief

Virgin Start-up asked us to produce and manage their Pitch to Rich event and their Virgin sponsored Fast track 100 event – both occurring within hours of each other, both in the presence of one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world. No pressure…

Well done to the entrepreneurs we met yesterday it was great to be part of your journey @VirginStartUp #PitchToRich

Our solution

It was a day of two halves. Spread across 4 marquees.

The morning – a teeth clenching session of pitches which brought 6 budding entrepreneurs together to present their brilliant business ideas to a panel of business masterminds. With only 90 seconds each to secure a share of over £1,000,000 of prizes and take their business plans to the next level.

Then, a seamless set change and we’re into the afternoon event – Fast Track 100, bringing together the top 100, fastest growing private UK companies to celebrate innovative business. CEO guest speakers. An hour Q&A session led by Sir Richard Branson. An awards dinner at the end of the day.  And we’re done, another successful event. And the start of a great relationship between ONE TWO FOUR and Virgin Startup.

 

The result

Virgin have commissioned us to do the Pitch to Rich event again in 2015, including the travelling roadshows which lead up to it.
