Toddlebike one of 12 PitchUp Finalists

Toddlebike is one of 12 UK finalists in this years PitchUP  and won the chance to pitch to John Lewis.

 

The 12 Finalists were invited to John Lewis HQ in London on Monday where we all had around half an hour to present our business and product to a panel of experts.

 

The day was fabulous and we were given a chance to meet Finalists from both this and last year and hear about their businesses.

 

The Toddlebike pitch went really well and the panel were very excited by our concept of a ‘Pre-Balance’ bike and where that would fill the gap between their current Ride On toys and Balance Bikes. They also absolutely loved the video ‘Cynan and his Bike’.

 

The next step is that we have been invited back for a ‘Mentoring Session’ with John Lewis so it is a case of ‘watch this space’. Exciting times!
