Hot on the heels of EIE today (Engage Invest Exploit – Scotland’s premier technology investor showcase), Cyan Forensics is off to St James’s Palace in London on Wednesday for Pitch@Palace, an event that showcases Britain’s most promising startups.
This will be the second major pitch in a week for Graham Little (Business Development – Cyan Forensics), who tells the story of how we help the police with investigation that protect children from sexual abuse and prevent terrorist attacks.
Informatics Ventures, who run EIE, helped Graham and the other pitchers prepare for theirs intense pitching experience. As Graham commented: “Learning how to pitch what we do clearly and concisely in one minute has been great – and the on stage experience was exciting.” EIE kills the lights and sound if pitchers go over time, leaving closing sentences unfinished.
Graham completed the Pitch@Palace bootcamp with flying colours, but admits to some nervous excitement about the upcoming event: “At Pitch at Palace you get three minutes. More time, but it’s at St James’s palace, the Duke of York is sitting in front of you, and there are two military buglers standing next to you who drown you out if you go over!”
Cyan Forensics is currently in second place in the online public vote for the Pitch at Palace People’s Choice Award. Graham explained: ”I hope the UK public get behind us as we’re helping in the fight against vile crimes, and as the only Scottish company we’re already seeing great support from the Scottish tech scene. Winning this award would really help raise our profile nationally, so please help us by voting.” Voting is open until April 25th.
