DCMS 5G Create: Online Pitching Event - 22 April 2020

Event details
Wednesday, 22 April 2020
14:00 pm – 15:00 pm
This event will be live streamed via webcast
DCMS, working with UK5G, is running a set of funding events for the 5G Create Project as part of the 5G Testbeds and Trials Programme.

5G Create is an open competition with the Government hoping to attract bids from a variety of industries where the UK has a competitive advantage, encouraging dynamic business models and opening up new opportunities and markets. This includes our creative industries but also our rich variety of technology businesses in sectors such as energy, water, health and social care and logistics.


Up to £30m will be available in this open competition, aiming to explore and develop new use-cases and sustainable business models for 5G applications and services.

Key to the success of this programme will be the formation of collaborative partnerships between applicants to deliver the projects.

In this online session facilitated by KTN and UK5G, participants seeking partners will be able to pitch to one another. The pitches will be recorded and placed on the UK5G website for the duration of the competition period.

(NB: If you have pitched at any of the 5G Create online briefing events on 31st March and the 2nd April there is no need to pitch again as these were recorded and are already available to view.)


Details for the pitches:

  • Each pitch length is 3 minutes
  • Maximum of 3 slides for each pitch. Please be concise.


In your pitch please include info on:

  • What you’re looking to do if you are proposing a project.
  • What do you have to offer?
