Welcome to the UK and Ireland’s biggest pitching competition. It’s your chance to pitch a business idea to Richard Branson and win a share of £1 million (€1.2 million) in prizes to make your business #VOOM.

Is Voom Pitch for you?

Yes. All you need is an idea. If you’re over 18, live and work in the UK and employ fewer than 250 people, go for it.

How it works…

1. Start-Up - This is open to anyone with a bold and brilliant idea, regardless of actual business experience. If you are already trading, you won’t have been doing so for more than three years. It’s all about potential. But be warned. This category is always hotly contested!

2. Grow- This is for established businesses that have been trading for more than a year and are ready to take things to the next level. Scale is the name of this game.

Then what?

To enter, you’ll need to distil your idea into one perfect elevator pitch and make a video to blow us away.

We can help you nail these things on tour, and there’ll be useful tools (and people!) popping up on this website, too.

At this point, you’ll need to campaign your heart out – and seize the opportunity to start crowdfunding, too.

If you finish at the top of the table (or close to it) you'll get to pitch to the boss at #VOOMFest:The Grand Finale.
