Pitch Day!

Internal Screening

Once the analyst has completed their due diligence and is satisfied with the information provided, the company will be invited to attend an ‘internal’ screening meeting with other members of the ACG team.


This meeting will require you to give a 10 minute pitch and answer any questions from the ACG Team.

Screening Committee

If successfully selected by the team, you will be asked to attend our Screening Committee.


Here you will pitch to a panel comprising of our corporate partners and volunteer Angels. This panel will select up to the companies to pitch live at the next formal pitching event.

Pitch Day!

This is where you will be asked to attend an ACG Pitching Meeting and deliver your pitch to our members. You will be given 10 minutes to pitch followed by time for questions.

Following the event you will be formally introduced to any members who express an interest in your opportunity.

​Should you receive investment from any of our members, you will become an ‘ACG Portfolio Company’ so we will want to hear from you with any updates, news, or help you if you are raising investment in the future. We would also love to put you on our website!

Don’t invest unless you’re prepared to lose all the money you invest. This is a high-risk investment, and you are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong. Take 2 mins to learn more.
