Tata Idea Idol 2012 Grand Finale
March 7th 2012, 6:30-8:30pm, followed by a drinks reception
Nelson Mandela Lecture Theatre, Said Business School
The Grand Finale of Tata Idea Idol 2012 promises to be a fantastic evening of entertainment, where our 6 finalists will pitch their ideas in front of a live audience and a panel of expert and celebrity judges, including Gary Frank (CEO of The Fabulous Bakin’ Boys); Leo Johnson (Co-Founder of Sustainable Finance Ltd); Will Chadwick (Vice President of Tata Interactive Systems); and Melody Hossaini (star from The Apprentice). The end of the evening will see the winner of Tata Idea Idol 2012 awarded with £10,000 in cash and prizes. What’s more, for the audience, we will be holding a draw to give away 2 Kindles and a place to the VIP dinner!
Last year’s dramatic finale saw six finalists each delivering 2 minute elevator pitches to a packed live audience and four formidable judges: Paloma Vivanco (from the BBC’s hit show The Apprentice), Alex Macpherson (CEO of Octopus Ventures), Nalin Miglani (Chief HR Officer of Tata Global Beverages) and Steven Liquorish (Oxfordshire Business Person of the Year 2011). The atmosphere was tense as the 6 finalists were grilled by the panel of judges, who interrogated them on the viability and potential of their ideas. The winner of the £10,000 prize money and additional support was Maxim Osipov with Flexibity.
Come along for the start-up exhibition, entertainment, and your chance to meet some of the most innovative entrepreneurs in the country. Registration will commence at 6:30pm for a prompt 7pm start.
