Sorry, this event has already taken place.

At the Cass Entrepreneurs Network (CEN) we know what entrepreneurs want for Christmas, funding for their idea, and so we’ve come up with an exciting panel of investors who want to make that wish come true!

Description

**Please, note that pitching slots are now booked up. However, registrations are still welcome to attend as part of the audience.**

Who can pitch? Anyone with a great idea for a product or service, whether or not you have something to demonstrate yet.

What do I have to do? Please register on this page AND as an entrepreneur at www.threedegrees.com and fill out the profile of your start-up. You will have 3-5 minutes to pitch your idea followed by two minutes of Q&A.

Refreshments will be served throughout the event with a ten minute break after the first hour.
