Watch our 10 Idea Factory finalists pitch to an expert panel of judges in the hopes of being crowned one of this year's Idea Factory winners

With a £10,000 prize pot and further mentorship and support at stake, come and be inspired by our 10 Finalist teams, and see what it takes to deliver a compelling pitch. It's a great chance for you to come along and have a go at being a dragon for the evening - who would you give the money to and why?

Returning for a third year is our People's Choice vote where YOU get a chance in the judging seat! Watch the videos (link coming soon) and vote for your favourite before 5pm on Wednesday 1st March. The People's Choice winner will be announced on the night, and will win a guaranteed £2,000 funding, access to mentorship, support, and more!

For the first time, Idea Factory is supporting engineering ideas that address the UN's Sustainable Development Goals through the Engineers in Business Competition (EIBC). Hear more about the three teams that faced the judges, and which team was crowned the winner, receiving £3,000 towards their idea. Find out more about the EIBC here, and attend the EIBC Pitch Off on Monday 27th February here (link coming soon).
