CGI Pitch Event Application Form: COVID-19 UPDATE

Thank you for your interest in the CGI pitch event, held in association with the TechMarketView Innovation Partner Programme.

We now intend to hold 'virtual' pitch sessions via Webex week beginning 27th April 2020.

In order to be considered you must complete this application form and submit it by 6pm Friday 3rd April 2020.

We will advise you if your application has been successful by Friday 17th April 2020. After we receive your application we may ask you to submit further information about your company to assist our evaluation.

To apply, you need to be a UK tech scaleup whose head office is based in the North of England, with innovative software solutions and/or skills that play to one or more emerging technology themes, in particular:

  • Advanced Analytics
  • Agile/DevOps
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Customer and employee experience
  • Intelligent Automation
  • Smart Cities (including immersive, 5G, drones, digital twin)

These solutions should address particular use cases in at least one of the Manufacturing or Transport & Logistics or Local Government sectors. You may be a solution development company or a consultancy with subject-matter experts and practitioners steeped in these technologies and sectors. And needless to say, you must not be a subsidiary of, or backed by, a competitor to CGI!

There is no fee required to apply for or participate in the pitch session.

The form should be completed by the Founder, CEO, MD or other board-level executive.

This form is most easily completed on a laptop or tablet though will also work with small form-factor devices. Please note that response boxes with a little triangle in the bottom right can be expanded to whatever size you need by clicking and dragging on the triangle. You can then insert multiple lines of text. Response boxes without a triangle are single line, for short amounts of text only.

We strongly suggest you print your completed form BEFORE you press the submit button using your browser's print facility so you have a record of your application.
