Annisha Elliot, 2023 Start-Up London participant & South Bank Ignite winner

"It is a great opportunity to meet new business-minded individuals, build confidence, get your business idea's out there, and receive great critique/feedback to help push you further in your business, goals, and ideas. I was so nervous to deliver my pitch, but I did it (yay!). Everyone made me feel comfortable, and I was able to be confident."
