For 10 weeks, the UnFound Accelerator has supported nine teams to turn their pioneering ideas into successful platform co‑operatives. The pitch event is their chance to showcase their brilliant ideas to the public and pitch for a slice of £10,000 prize money provided by The Co‑operative Bank

What is the UnFound Accelerator LIVE! Pitch event?

  • Rose Marley, CEO of Co‑operatives UK and Catherine Douglas, Managing Director, SME, The Co‑operative Bank will host the event 
  • You will hear from each of the nine teams
  • As part of the audience, you will have the chance to vote for your favourite pitches – help to choose which teams win a share of the £10,000 prize fund from The Co‑operative Bank. The top three teams with the most votes and how the prize money will be divided between them
