Future Forward Event – 27th November – London


Peter Evans, Enterprise Editor at The Sunday Times, will be using his journalistic skills live on stage at Future Forward with a candid interview with one of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs and our Angel of the Year, Vin Murria OBE.

Vin Murria OBE is a successful technology entrepreneur and active investor, with over 20 years’ experience in M&A and software sectors.

She is passionate about helping women in tech and also recognises the importance of supporting women to access investment in regions outside the golden triangle.

Her own portfolio is almost exclusively in women, having made 10 investments in early stage entrepreneurs, bringing strong mentorship and deep strategic support to her portfolio businesses.

Our Pitch Events

There are four pitch events per year, in 2024 they will be held in February, May, September and November. Hosted at a Bournemouth hotel or virtually via Zoom.

At each pitch event, there will be 5 business presentation pitches of 10-15 minutes, to suit all investor appetites. These will be selected by the Dorset Business Angels directors nearer to the event. Short summaries will be posted to our Events page and distributed via our newsletter ahead of the event. Each pitch includes a Q&A session and is followed by an investor debate, held privately.

These pitches and our other social events are ideal opportunities for networking and learning about what is new and trending in a variety of industries. If you would like to be involved you can find out more on our Investors Membership page.
