Organised by BusinessZone.co.uk in association with digital services company Yell, The Pitch has been celebrating the best of British business since 2008.
With the UK preparing to celebrate the Queen's diamond jubilee this weekend, organisers have extended the application deadline to allow more British business owners to get involved.
"The Pitch 2012 is all about the best of British business, so as the UK comes over all patriotic this weekend to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, we're extending the application deadline to cover the extra time off," says Dan Martin, editor of BusinessZone.co.uk and founder of The Pitch.
To get your pitch in you need to apply by 11.59pm on Tuesday 5 June and once entries close, small business owners from England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales will be selected to compete at The Pitch Live in Liverpool in October.
Four finalists will proceed to the grand final at London's Ministry of Sound nightclub in November where the overall champion will win £50,000 worth of business support including money-can't-buy mentoring from serial entrepreneur Karen Darby.
