THINK YOU'VE GOT THE MIDAS TOUCH?
Do you have a golden business idea? Are you looking for the finance to make it happen? Then practise your pitch, and be part of The Midas Touch at The Business Show.
The Midas Touch - one of the show's most popular features - challenges 24 contestants to pitch their business idea or model to a Dragons' Den-style panel of millionaire entrepreneurs, in front of a live audience. The contestant with the best pitch over the event's two days is crowned the Innovator of the Show, which will be presented during the last session on Friday.
Take part as a spectator, or have a go yourself! If you want to take part, pitch positions are limited, so make sure you register as soon as possible. You will be emailed asking to provide a one-page business idea, so make sure you're armed with all the information! We will choose the 24 best entries to go through to the event and then it's time to practice your pitch...
If you've got a flawless business plan and only need the money to make it happen, then pitching to a panel of millionaire entrepreneurs at the Midas Touch might be the best way to spend your afternoon. For your chance to take part, just send us your business idea - in less than one side of A4 - and the level of investment you are looking for to email@example.com
About the Sponsor
Are you an entrepreneur looking to take your business to the next level? You have found the right partner to help you do so! The Rockstar Mentoring Group is the UK's Number 1 mentoring and funding organisation for entrepreneurs looking to grow or raise finance. They fast track profit growth and investment by providing experienced and successful mentors on a one to one, face to face basis.
The average Rockstar mentor has started, built up and sold one of their companies for a sale price of £18million! It will be the Rockstar mentors who will be the panellists at this year's Business Show!
Since being founded in 2007 by Jonathan Pfahl, an ex-Goldman Sachs Private Wealth Manager (who regularly appears on The Midas Touch investor panel at The Business Show), Rockstar Mentoring Group has built a phenomenal team of over 70 mentors from more than 25 different industries. Each mentor is experienced in taking good ideas and turning them into real life £multi-million businesses, and they are on the hunt for new and exciting investment opportunities.
For the businesses that are ready for investment, we move swiftly to invest the capital and provide the support they need. And if Rockstar feel certain tweaks need to be made to the business plan, valuation and management team, they are also able to provide this first, then raise investment once they are investor-ready.
For those selected for this year's Midas Touch, it's a great opportunity to be put in front of an active investor base all from the same network, but whose sectors vary. This promises to give you not only 3-4 honest and varied opinions on the viability of your business, but a genuine "next step" for everyone who pitches, which will either involve writing a cheque or getting you investor-ready to then raise investment.
