The Tiger's Pen

Startup Investment Hub

The Tiger’s Pen was designed for start-ups looking for investment, and some Tigers to guide, advise and invest. Thus far, The Tiger’s Pen has helped a few businesses flourish to meet their full capacity. This year, investment is increasing with up to a capital of £5,000 available for start-ups who pitch their ideas. This opportunity is for incredible energetic entrepreneurs to take the reins of their business. The jungle is alive with fresh prospects and with new investor Tigers requesting to join, keep your ears peeled for their roars.

If you're a tech start up, art company, outdoor catering or events company, don't be afraid to enter the pen! We've seen lots of different companies pitch live. A fishing company, a micro brewery and a VR gaming company were all given support in 2020.

Your company must be LIMITED and it must of been trading for up to three years, as you may be expected to give away a few shares in your company as an equity stake at the show. Entry is £275+VAT, but this is refunded back to you once you've pitched live at The Sussex Business Show.

If you fail to show for the event for any reason whatsoever, then your entry fee will NOT be refunded.

At the footer of this contact form there is a flip box information pack, please view before emailing us. Thank you very much.

Any business deal agreed on the day is an unwritten agreement that depends on due diligence checks, and relies on the intergrity of both investor and the startup to freely enter the transaction and be fully committed to seeing it through. However, the deal is solely between the Tiger and the entrepreneur and after additional meetings, if an agreement cannot be reached, neither party is legally obliged to complete the deal.

Network Xpress Ltd / The Sussex Business Show and The Tiger's Pen remains impartial, as they cannot be involved in the business contract between the two sides.
