    Tell us about your pitching experience for the Brookes Spark Award

    It was my first time pitching and I really enjoyed the casual, supportive atmosphere from the event!

    How has taking part in the pitch improved your skill set?

    Experience and practice are everything when it comes to pitching, so it was a great start to perfecting that skill!

    How will winning this money help you?

    This will go towards the installation of the EV drivetrain in my test vehicle in Oxford.

    What are your next steps?

    I am continuing to establish supplier partnerships and simultaneously preparing for investment and vehicle development stages which will take place over the next 1-2 years.

    The best possible thing you can do with a business idea or dream is to say "yes" to every new face, and throw yourself out there as much as possible.
