VIPer Pit

The VIPer Pit is a Dragon’s Den-style competition where Vertically Integrated Projects for Sustainable Development (VIP4SD) students present funding pitches to a panel of judges.

Students will have the opportunity to win up to £2,000 to support the development of their VIP4SD projects.

This year, the top 3 pitches will be presented at the conference, and the winners will be announced live following a Q&A from the judges.

The VIPer Pit is kindly funded by the Lady Curran Endowment Fund.
