Business Rocks is a global platform for tech innovation. The Innov8 Awards connect tech entrepreneurs with world-class investors, executives and media, taking place in Manchester in the spring.
The INNOV8 Award is for unique, diverse & creative technology start-ups who will go up against each other in a competition to win £100,000 investment & prizes from Business Rocks & Innov8 Partners.
The prize is up to £100,000 investment to the winner for 10% equity in the company, subject to the winner illustrating that the business has a valuation of £1 million. If the business does not fit this criteria then the investor will invest £50,000 as a seed investment for 10%.
Start-ups will need to submit pitch packs to be reviewed by external judges in the pre-pitch pack round and only 40 will proceed into the live pitch rounds on 3 & 4 May 2017.
This scheme is administered by Business Rocks and sponsored by Virgin Media Business, vmware, the LADbible, We are Tech North, boohoo.com, SC and Prettylittlething.com.
