Applications for this pitch event close on Friday 27 October.

If you are interested in joining the network and attending our events please email for further details.

We hold five pitch events a year where high-growth early-stage companies will be invited to present their businesses to members of the network.

Applicant companies are shortlisted by an investor selection panel and four businesses will be invited to pitch.

Each business has ten minutes to pitch followed by questions from the investors.

We normally expect around ten investors to attend each pitch event, but this will vary depending on availability and interest in particular applicant companies.

Following the pitch, if applicants are in agreement, a copy of the presentations and contact details, are shared with the whole network (currently 55 members).

The MAINstream team are always on hand to answer any questions, but at this stage we leave the investors to follow up directly with the organisations of interest to them.

If you wish to apply please complete the two application forms and return with a copy of your pitch deck to
