Gazette: Jamie to pitch his skiing app to Sir Richard Branson Jamie to pitch his skiing app to Sir Richard Branson

An entrepreneur will pitch his revolutionary skiing app to Sir Richard Branson after winning a place in the final of a national competition.

Jamie Grant, 28, from Langham, is one of six finalists in Virgin Media’s Pitch to Rich competition.

The former Colchester Royal Grammar School pupil created Lines, a snowsports application that uses smartphone sensors to track skiiers on the slopes.

On Tuesday, Jamie will travel to the Branson family home in Oxfordshire to pitch to a panel of entrepreneurs, including Sir Richard and Nick Jenkins, founder of greeting card website Moonpig.

He has been chosen from more than 400 applicants for a chance to win £5,000 to further his business.

Jamie said: “Having the opportunity to pitch our company to Sir Richard Branson is a real honour - and it’ll be a great chance to get feedback from industry professionals.

“I’m looking forward to meeting him and even if we don’t win, it will be great to meet lots of cool people.”
