It’s time to nominate yourself and your business to be in with a chance to impress the judges and win €100,000 worth of business products


Fashion and beauty aside, IMAGE has long been recognised as a champion of all things business, helping many businesswomen succeed in competitive markets. Now, in the second year of The Pitch, we have once again teamed up with Samsung to continue this tradition with yet another exceptional opportunity to win a career-changing prize worth up to €100,000.

In an exciting development to the competition this year, entry is open to both women and men as we strive to help one lucky winner reach their professional potential.

“We want to push the next generation of business owners out of their comfort zone and support them to realise their true potential.”

CEO of IMAGE Media, Clodagh Edwards says: “Building on the success of last year’s competition, we are delighted to extend entry to both male and female business owners. The Pitch provides inspiration for emerging leaders and offers a unique platform for finalists to build their professional profile, plus a truly career-changing opportunity for one lucky winner.”

“Above all else, we want to push the next generation of business owners out of their comfort zone and support them to realise their true potential.”

Marketing director of Samsung Ireland Linda Nolan says: “The Pitch is one of the most inspiring and exciting campaigns to be a part of. This year we are inviting women and men who own their own start-up companies to enter.”

“We have the same amazing prize and the same line up of judges, with the addition of last year’s winner and one of Ireland’s leading beauty influencers Jennifer Rock.”

“It’s going to be really exciting and I can’t wait to see our finalists on September 5.”

Why enter? 

As well as recognition, exposure and an opportunity to network with emerging leaders in Irish business, the shortlist will all receive media coverage from IMAGE Magazine and other outlets, while the winner of The Pitch will take home €100,000 worth of business products.
