Varsity Pitch 2021


Tata Varsity Pitch Competition, powered by NACUE is an annual, national early stage business pitching competition that celebrates the best businesses coming out of colleges and universities across the UK.

Proudly representing one of the flagship enterprise events, as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), celebrating and showing the entrepreneurial flair of young businesses for over 10 years now, our previous Varsity Pitch winners include: Little Riot, Swogo, Beryl (former Blaze), AEROPOWDER, WASECosi Care and most recently crowned 2020 winner Post Carbon Lab.

The three-stage competition provides an exceptional opportunity for early stages businesses to gain exposure to international businesses, gain credible feedback from industry experts, business support, a chance to compete for the increased prize pot of £15,000 equity free funding and a national title.

Are you a current student or have graduated since 2016 from a UK college or university? Are you running a business or have the next BIG idea?  Then Tata’s Varsity Pitch Competition is for you!
