Howz will be present at PITCH@PALACE 4.0 hosted by His Royal Highness The Duke of York, KG St James’s Palace Monday 2nd November 5 pm

Howz has been selected to attend Pitch@Palace 4.0 held at St James’s Palace on Monday 2nd November 2015.

The Duke of York founded Pitch@Palace in 2014 to support entrepreneurs with the amplification and acceleration of their business ideas by connecting them with potential supporters including CEOs, Angels, Mentors and key business partners.

Howz took part in Pitch@Palace on Tour in Manchester.

Howz has been designed to ease the worries of having an elderly relative without being intrusive. With over 5 million 75 year olds across the UK, Howz are looking to change the way people see ageing, allowing people to stay independent for longer. Howz analyses electricity usage and sensor data to learn what’s normal and feeds back to the family if something doesn’t seem right. The product is currently available to preorder on Kickstarter.

What happens at Pitch@Palace 4.0?

Howz is 1 of 15 Entrepreneurs that will have the opportunity to do a 3 minute Pitch to an audience of CEOs, Angels, Mentors and key business partners in the State Apartments at St James’s Palace.

Pitch@Palace People’s Choice Vote
