Entrepreneurs are being encouraged to enter a business competition which offers up specialist and valuable advice from some of the UK's most successful business people.

The winner of The Pitch 2013 will receive business support including mentoring from founder Karen Darby and have a chance to claim all or part of £275,000 worth of investment.

Shauna McCarney from organic baby food company Heavenly Tasty Organics made it through to the UK final of The Pitch last year, however, no Northern Ireland entrepreneurs have yet to take top spot.

Entrepreneurs interested in The Pitch 2013 need to apply at by 7 July after which up to 50 shortlisted contestants will be selected to compete at The Pitch Live in Bristol on 25 September.

Five finalists will then compete in the grand final that evening for the chance to win the package of support.
