The New Forest Bees Nest Pitching Competition returns for a second year this June following a ‘hugely successful’ inaugural event.

Organised by IncuHive in partnership with New Forest District Council, the event will welcome entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas as they vie for a £1,000 cash prize.

There’ll also be an opportunity for local companies to take part in a business showcase exhibition.

George Scott-Welsh, CEO of IncuHive, said: “We’re excited to host the New Forest Bees Nest Pitching Competition and support the entrepreneurial spirit of the New Forest community.

“This is an opportunity for budding entrepreneurs to showcase their ideas, win a great selection of prizes including £1,000 cash, and gain valuable free publicity.”

IncuHive runs coworking spaces across Hampshire – Hursley, Andover, Stockbridge, Brockenhurst and Winchester – as well as in Weybridge, Surrey and Wilton, Wiltshire.

Cllr Derek Tipp, portfolio holder for economy and planning, added: “New Forest District Council is very pleased to again work in partnership with IncuHive on the Bees Nest competition.

“This builds on the work of the council’s Start Up Support programme, also delivered by IncuHive.

“We encourage our local entrepreneurs to get involved and help to showcase both their business and the terrific entrepreneurial spirit within the New Forest.”

The government-funded competition is open to anyone thinking about starting a business in the New Forest, as well as anyone who’s done so recently or knows someone who has.

It will take place from 9.30am to 12.30pm on Wednesday 26 June at The Linden Hall, Lyndhurst Community Centre.

Those interested in pitching or exhibiting are invited to get in touch with Andy Pringle at IncuHive on 07817 065694 or at [email protected]
