The entrepreneurs will pitch their businesses to a panel of judges on Tuesday 12 July. The pitches will be streamed live on

Judging the contestants will be serial social entrepreneur Karen Darby, marketing expert and star of Channel 4’s The Secret Millionaire Carl Hopkins, and Adam Price, an award-winning entrepreneur and managing director

On his role as a heat judge Price says: “I am delighted to be the Welsh judge for The Pitch 2011. Seeing new talent emerging from Wales is exciting and something I am eager to be a part of.
“I know first-hand what it takes to build a business from scratch and will be looking for somebody with the imagination, energy and perseverance it takes to turn a great idea into a prosperous reality.”

As part of the event, the audience and pitchers will receive valuable business advice from an impressive line-up of speakers. A number of successful Welsh entrepreneurs will share their tips for success.

They include Stuart Jolley, creator of Wingman and star of BBC2’s Britain’s Next Big Thing, Alex Gazzard, managing director of Cardiff-based serviced apartment company Acityabode, Lucy Cohen, co-founder of accountancy firm Mazuma and Sue Acton, founder of Bubble & Balm.
