What is The Pitch?

The Pitch is back, and the challenge has been set, but have you got what it takes to impress our panel of industry leaders?

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 Challenge is set by a leading global brand which provides students with the opportunity, in teams of two or three, to apply their learning from their degrees. The top 10 teams will have the opportunity to pitch their ideas and demonstrate their ability in front of true business professionals in March 2021 at the live final, this year being delivered virtually.

We are delighted to announce that our sponsor for 2021 is innovative relentless pioneers, Samsung.
