What is The Pitch?

The Pitch is a nationwide competition designed to recognise and reward the marketing talent of the future.

Each year we task undergraduate marketing and business students in their second or third year of university, with a real-life marketing challenge. This year's Challenge was set by a leading global brand, Samsung, providing students with the opportunity, in teams of two or three, to apply their learning from their degrees. The top nine teams had the opportunity to virtually pitch their ideas and demonstrate their ability in front of true business professionals on 19 March 2021.

“Samsung’s mobile devices, such as foldable mobile phones, tablets, headphones and watches, are at the cutting edge of portable technology. How can we use this innovation to communicate our ‘relentless pioneer’ brand DNA to Generation Z?”
