What is Pitch '22?

Brown Thomas Arnotts have always committed to supporting our local community and are passionate about championing local talent and small businesses.

Our stores have historic roots and a strong connection to communities in which they grew. We are delighted to reintroduce our initiative Pitch ’22, a project that will see these connections continue to flourish.

Our mission to reinvent retail is driven by our dedication to our people and planet, our desire to create an innovative and immersive shopping experience all while keeping our customers at the centre of what we do.

Once again, we invited Irish start-ups and entrepreneurs to pitch for a chance to be mentored by a team of experts in the world of retail and secure placement as part of the 2022 Arnotts Christmas Market and thereafter. The ultimate winner of Pitch '22 will also secure a €10,000 business development fund.

What's Next?

Thank you to everyone who applied to Pitch `22. The live pitches have now concluded and our judges thoroughly enjoyed meeting with shortlisted applicants. The finalist announcement is coming soon but in the meantime, here is a snapshot of the action from the live pitching round.

5 finalists will be selected to participate in the campaign and will avail of mentoring and training sessions along with an opportunity to be part of the Arnotts Christmas 2022 edit.

In January ’23, one of the five finalists will become the winner of a €10,000 business development fund. Be sure to follow the journey on our social channels to stay up to date.
