As part of our remit to find innovators who can benefit the defence and security of the UK, the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) is pleased to support the Pitch@Palace 9.0 “Data, Intelligence, and The Future of Security” Defence-themed campaign.
Pitch@Palace 9.0 is looking for innovation solutions to enhance the support and protection for the men and women who serve in the UK’s Armed Forces, across the range of challenges. These areas include:
- performance of personnel and training
- harnessing medical and rehabilitation advances
- data capture, processing and analysis
- greater efficiency through the use of automation and autonomy
- personal security, protective clothing and human augmentation
- virtual or augmented reality and simulation
- logistics management
Set up by His Royal Highness the Duke of York in 2014, Pitch@Palace is a charitable trust which aims to guide, help and connect early-stage businesses with potential supporters, including CEOs, influencers, angel investors, mentors and business partners.
The on tour event is on the 31 January 2018 in London, location to be confirmed and will be attended by HRH Duke of York, Chief Scientific Adviser and senior MOD representatives/ ministers. The final event will be held at St James’s Palace in April.
How do I apply?
Applications to the Pitch@Palace Series 9.0 should be made through the Pitch@Palace website. Applications must be made by 17 January 2017.
How it works
Entrepreneurs who apply to the Pitch@Palace are first selected to participate in an On Tour Event, one of three regional heats from which they may get the invitation to attend a Boot Camp.
At Boot Camp the participants will receive support and guidance on how to develop and hone their pitch, as well as support with investment, introductions and strategic guidance.
All of the entrepreneurs selected for Boot Camp are invited to the the on tour event and then the final event at St. James’s Palace, if they are successful. A selection will pitch directly to an influential audience from the worlds of entrepreneurship, technology, media and investment.
All of the Pitch@Palace entrepreneurs will join the growing alumni network of entrepreneurs and receive ongoing support.
