YEA! Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Pitch Event

May 6, 2022
12:00 - 16:00
YEA! pitch event

Join us for the YEA! pitch event as 17 young entrepreneurs take to the stage to pitch for £2,000 and other top prizes.


The YEA! pitch event marks the end of our intensive 12-week enterprise support programme for young entrepreneurs from Newham, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

Over the last 3 months, these 17 budding entrepreneurs have embarked on a journey to learn, collaborate and take their businesses to the next level. They now have the chance to pitch for £2,000 and other top prizes in front of our panel of judges.

The event has been co-designed, produced and created by the young founders themselves as part of the programme — it is now the young entrepreneurs time to shine and your support means the world to all of us!

Who is this for?

You need to register to join this event. If you'd like to show your support, we'd love you to join us for an inspiring afternoon of pitching, networking, drinks and nibbles.
