    10 of our 100 participating Startups have the opportunity to pitch their project for 8 minutes in total: 3 minutes pitching and a further 5 minutes for question & answer. Then, if investors convinced, they offer you the investment or an investment package. You can sign initial agreement or contract in the event or progress later. 

    After the main pitching (above 10 pitching) you can use the "30 seconds elevator pitch" to pitch your business to Dragon investors & audience investors, to receive investment; if investors convinced. Overally, there would be 20 investors. 


    What businesses need to prepare for pitching: 

    1. Proof of Concept: proof they have something your targeted customers want. The best way to prove that is existing sales. 

    2. A valuation that stacks up.

    For example: someone who says I need £50k and offering 10% values their company at £500k but if no sales are made and it is still in its infancy the company is not worth anywhere near £500k. That puts investors off straight away. 

    For normal example: "you have made £50k in sales and a profit of £20k, given the industry, basing it on a multiple of 6 x earnings so, the business is valued at £300k (6 x 50k) and you need £50k and you therefore offering a 17% stake in your business." 

    However, decision on offering equity % is by businesses totally & no one interfere in that, same as accepting any offer by investors.
