On the 24th September 2019, our CEO had the pleasure to pitch to HRH The Duke of York Prince Andrew, a distinguished panel of judges and a packed lecture hall at Pitch@Palace 12.0 on Tour which took place at the University of South Wales Newport Campus.
It was a pleasure to meet the Duke of York, and hear about his perspectives on entrepreneurship, pitching and innovative business. He officially refereed the panel, and took a genuine interest in every single pitch.
The pitch by CEO Daniel gave an overview of the problems and pains that industrial organisations (energy, water, transportation and manufacturing) face in regards to cyber security, it also covered how Awen is providing solutions with Profile, Dot and our planned future software products. Finally there was an ask of the audience for any introductions that they may be able to offer in these industries, to ensure that cyber security is on the board-level and managerial-level agenda.
The day also included inspirational talks from the Cofounder of Just Eat UK, David Buttress, and the Cofounder of Coffee#1, James Shapland. Breaks in the day provided not only needed refreshments, but also opportunities to network with various professionals. Plus, the entrepreneurs received some nifty goodies:
I’d recommend anyone thinking of Pitch @ Palace to go for it. It is a great opportunity to meet some exciting people and showcase some of the UK’s most innovative companies.
