Pitch 700x286
Are you ready for The Pitch? The UK’s biggest small business competition is underway! As lead sponsor and one of the UK’s foremost advocates of entrepreneurs and small businesses, Vonage is thrilled to be supporting this year’s search for the next wave of innovative, exciting small businesses.
The Pitch has been running since 2008, and shares our passion for helping start-ups by shining a light on fantastic entrepreneurial talent. The competition asks small businesses under three years old to develop and submit a brilliant business idea that could be the next big thing.

Not only do candidates compete for a business-boosting prize package with myriad networking opportunities along the way, but we’re going to help them develop their ideas. We’ll provide enthusiastic mentorship, support and encouragement throughout the process, alongside an inspiring programme of advice, ideas and events.

Simon Burckhardt, MD of Vonage UK, explains why he’s looking forward to getting stuck in: “Vonage is passionate about helping small businesses thrive. As a former owner of a small business, I’ve amassed a wealth of commercial, communications and technology expertise that I’m keen to share with the next generation of small business leaders.”
