The second-place award at Pitch@Palace Biotech was won by online doctor-booking venture Doctify, and third place went to magnetic blood filtering venture Medisieve – through voting by several hundred people who heard the final pitches at St James’s Palace. The People’s Choice Award, through a wider public vote, was won by prostate cancer detection company Cambridge Oncometrix.
Two of the four award winners have strong ties to Cambridge Judge Business School: JustMilk is in Accelerate Cambridge, part of the Entrepreneurship Centre at Cambridge Judge, while Medisieve took part in Ignite, one of the Entrepreneurship Centre’s flagship programmes.
The Duke of York, who is patron of the Entrepreneurship Centre at Cambridge Judge, congratulated the winners and thanked mentors and others who have contributed to Pitch@Palace over the past three years – helping more than 200 start-up businesses employing nearly 450 people to grow, and generating more than £124 million in economic activity.
