News Bright Young Minds: Bizwear Attends Pitch@Palace

8 November 2017

In 2014, the Duke of York founded Pitch@Palace to provide a platform to amplify and accelerate the work of entrepreneurs. Two years later, HRH founded Pitch@Palace Global to help entrepreneurs build connectivity around the world. Pitch@Palace Global helps entrepreneurs seek new markets and find partners and investors to build prosperity and create jobs.

Mike Gluning, Bizwear General Manager, is a member of the RMIT Industry Advisory Group (IAG) which advises RMIT’s Fashion and Textile School on industry trends and development. As a part of this role, Mike and Bizwear were recently invited to attend Pitch@Palace Global.

At Bizwear, we pride ourselves on our innovative and entrepreneurial culture. Through this event, we were able to tap into some of the smartest and most creative young minds in Australia. The three minute pitches from eight shortlisted finalists were diverse in their concepts and presentation style. It was fascinating to see emerging trends and developments in the health and tourism sectors.

To continue our support for talented young minds, we were excited to pass on two exceptional concepts to one of our largest customers who might further their success through mentoring, seed-funding or industry specific feedback.
