Last week we had an audience with Prince Andrew The Duke of York, KG at Pitch@Palace 6.0 to demo our new product for 2017.

Along with 16 other entrepreneurs we pitched the concept of a web-based version of our GPS-triggered native apps to an audience of CEOs, Investors and Mentors at The AMRC (Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre), Sheffield.

Entrepreneurs from Biotech and Medical Technology to Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality all had 3 minutes to win the hearts of the judges.

“The standard and passion of Businesses today was outstanding. We will support you with next steps.”
