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.
We are delighted to have the following experts on the VIPer Pit judging panel:
Prof James Curran MBE, Chair of the James Hutton Institute and of Climate Ready Clyde, and representative of VIP4SD funder The Lady Curran Endowment Fund.
Natasha Lobley, Start-Up Advisor at Strathclyde Inspire, the University’s entrepreneurship initiative.
Dr Paul Chin, Head of Learning and Teaching, Centre for Learning & Teaching, University of Bath. Paul also leads Bath’s VIP programme.
