Entrepreneurs: Pitch To Rich And Make It Big!

March 27, 2015 12:47 pm

The world famous entrepreneur Richard Branson has launched yet another initiative to help out aspiring youngsters who are aiming to be just like the Virgin business mogul. His ‘Pitch To Rich 2015’ campaign will see thousands of people in with a chance to win a million pounds worth of prizes. But perhaps more important than the monetary value of the prize winnings will be the chance to get close up to Richard Branson and his teams of marketers and investors.

As Virgin have recently taken over East Coast Trains in addition to themselves, it’s no secret that Mr. Branson is a vehicle for success with pretty much anything he puts his mind to. Pitch To Rich will be working in partnership with LinkedIn using the hashtag #VOOM and the results of the judging panel and all prizewinners will be published there first.

There is set to be three main categories for prize winners which include; Start-ups, New Things and Grow. Winners of each category receive anything from £50,000 to £250,000 pounds plus a years supply or marketing or investment support from the Virgin team and two second placers will receive £50,000, £10,000 and £100,000 respectively from each category.


As if that wasn’t enough, all package winners will receive free internet and mobile contracts for a year and free travel on Virgin Trains for a year as well giving them an incredible platform to really boost their businesses in a big way. By working with LinkedIn, Pitch To Rich will be open to c. 17 million UK users and will encourage and strengthen Britain’s start-up and entrepreneur community helping it to prosper and giving people with ideas the chance of a life time.
