#DisruptivePitch: the new online TV show for tech start ups

By Andrew McLean, Director, Compare The Cloud Limited.

Free PR for Tech startups – sixty technologies will battle it out until there is only One Pitch
There is a new trend emerging among young pioneering tech startups but many struggle to create exposure for their businesses. The reason may be subjective, but Compare the Cloud has created a platform that provides a solution to techs lacking adequate PR. Disruptive Pitch – an online TV show.

The purpose of the show is to gain exposure. The concept is that contestants have to explain their technology and business as they would to a client – absolutely no PowerPoint! An elevator pitch of sorts. The catch? They only have three minutes.

The show is set up like a Dragon’s Den of sorts, with a panel of charismatic engaging judges. Each episode, which will be dedicated to a specialist industry, will put ten 3 minute pitches up against four expert judges. These industries will include Big Data and Open Source.


The success of the contestants on the show is in the hands of the judges and whether or not they can adequately communicate the benefit and USP’s of their business in the allotted time frame.

The finalists of each episode will advance to the final round where they will compete for the ultimate prize: a chance to keynote at the Cloud Expo Europe 2017 at ExCeL in London. All applicants will have the opportunity to network with major technology vendors and partners before and after the scheduled event.

Having premiered in October, with over 12,000 viewers, the show provides viewers with an enlightening and entertaining glimpse into the tech industry. The show will continue to be released once a month for the next six months.

Peter Bradley, Founder and CEO, Torsion Information Security, was the finalist in Disruptive TV’s first episode.  He is among one of the many who will fight it out in the final round for the grand prize.

“We are extremely excited to be a part of Disruptive Pitch 2016, having participated in the first episode. Genuine innovation makes a real splash, and the opportunity to pitch to Disruptive TV’s audience has been fantastic in getting the word out
about Torsion Information Security.” said Peter Bradley,
 Founder and  CEO, Torsion Information Security. “We’re very much looking forward to the next round.”
