Pitch Perfect at the Hub
On Thursday 15th March, Make It York will hold their third Stand & Deliver event. Taking place from 6pm at the Ron Cooke Hub, University of York; four businesses will each have ten minutes to pitch to a panel of investors and convince them that they have the potential to grow and succeed.

The businesses pitching are Mocara based in York who specialise in online retail & wholesale of a healthy range of foods for dogs.  Railguard, also based in York, have developed some smartphone technology that makes the process of claiming compensation much easier for rail users who have experienced delays to their journey.

Joining them will be ShopAppy, based in Shipley.  Their product allows consumers to shop with a range of independent traders with the added convenience of collecting the order from just one shop as opposed to all of them.  Last but not least, we are joined by Daft Puddin, specialising in delivering Yorkshire Puddings in a range of flavours that you’ve not come across before.

Assessing the quality of their pitches and putting them on the spot in the Q&A, is the panel of four respected investors.  Helen Oldham from North Invest, Steven Tuckley from Beringea, James Dalton from Fonemedia and Mark Fordyce of York Data Services will all have the challenge of deciding whether to invest or not.

Individual tickets priced at £15+VAT are on sale now and can be purchased here  

Tickets include a seat in the house to watch the action unfold, light refreshments and networking opportunities with our exhibitors.

Simon Middleton, Business Growth Manager, Make It York, said, “I’m delighted to be holding the third Stand & Deliver event in York.  We have brought together four businesses, each with an engaging proposition that will hopefully tempt our investors.  It’s not all about the cash investment though as sharing experience and contacts can be just as valuable and we wish all participants well.”
