This Bee’s Nest pitch event is open to new and early-stage businesses in the New Forest District Council area.

Once your expression of interest has been received, one of our advisers will get in touch to discuss your pitch. This should include a little bit of background about you and your business, a description of the services that you provide, your plans for the future and why the judges should pick you!
If nothing else, this a great opportunity to promote your business to local leaders, other business owners, and potential new customers!
You will be given up to 15 minutes to impress the panel and the gathered audience (you are welcome to invite friends and family to cheer you on – admission is free!).
This pitch event has been organised to highlight the entrepreneurial talent that exists in the area, but we do all have to adhere to some basic guidelines. Accordingly, there is no guarantee that every application will selected, and anything that could be deemed controversial will automatically be rejected. Full terms and conditions will be supplied upon approval. The panel consists of independent local people and should not have any connection to the finalists. Their decision will be final and not open to question.
