Congratulations go to Simon Hombersley, business development director of Lontra, who won the ‘Best Pitch’ award at the Investment Showcase event held by Conduit Partners and the Carbon Trust on 21 November.
Lontra – a UK-based cleantech start-up developing energy-saving compressors and engines – was one of five companies in the low-carbon sector pitching to a room full of potential investors at the event, which was held at Home Housein central London. Everyone was asked to vote for their favourite pitch at the end of the evening. Simon emerged the winner, and was lauded for his lively presentation that was articulate and simplified the business and investment case. He wins a bottle of Champagne.
Conduit Partners’ chief executive Paul Gooch said: “The event showcased five high-growth potential companies in the low-carbon sector. My congratulations to all the presenters who performed extremely well in putting forward the opportunity and value proposition for each of their companies.”
