Central to the London event was the Business-Pitch Workshop. Keeping a business pitch short and sweet is a staple of day-to-day businessmaking, and naturally features as part of the European Entrepreneurship Competition in PLAYER.

And the London PLAYER Event made sure to get attending students to exercise their pitch delivery skills. Thirteen attendants did an elevator pitch of a business idea for an audience, and the best three pitches out of the thirteen were streamed live to the Brussels Event.
