The Entrepreneurs Pitch
EP would like to thank the pitchers, all attendees and Joelson for their great spaces which provided the perfect environment for the pitches.
The Entrepreneurs Pitch supports the many new ideas coming into the sector and continues to bring together companies and the innovators.
Below are some images from the event and details on each pitch:
Inploi: Matt and Alex, founders of Inploi, were the first entrepreneurs to pitch their idea in front of our dragons. Inploi, an app that connects employers and job seekers in the hospitality industry, explained that many companies struggle to find the right candidates because job boards are often inefficient, with no filtering mechanisms. As a result of their own struggles to find casual employment, they decided to create a web applications, facilitating a seamless interaction between employers and jobseekers.
Fran’s granola: Francesca, an Italian entrepreneur presented Frans’ Granola, a handmade, organic granola produced in Italy. Genuinely passionate about her country, Francesca described her new adventure as a dream coming true. During the pitch she provided guests with samples of both her delicious granola in classic and orange and cranberry flavours as well as her raw energy bites which are healthy, tasty and fun.
City Munch: With very few restaurants being full at any other time of the day, City Munch cleverly connects customers and great independent restaurants in Central London by offering diners exclusive, real-time discounts. The inspiration for Robert came when he tried to find a solution to help fill his friend’s restaurant. “City Munch will get more people through the door without having that horrible feeling of eating in an empty restaurant” – says Robert.
BPL: Ben Floyd and Bertie Guard , directors of BPL described BPL’s team as the problem-solvers. Customers are central for BPL, a digital agency that focuses on creating rich user journeys and beautiful customer experiences. From booking system implementation to member apps, website creation and CRM, BPL have worked in a number of exciting areas both with some big brands on the high street and big players within the hospitality industry.
We look forward to sending you information about our next Entrepreneurs Pitch in October.
