Ross Dickinson, founder of Kibosh, secured £50,000 worth of business support following the grand final of ThePitch 2011, organised by BusinessZone.co.uk in association with print and digital services company Yell.
Dickinson, who won the Scottish heat of the competition during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, pitched alongside contestants from England, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as a wildcard picked by the public, at Londonís legendary Pacha nightclub.

Delivering a killer pitch while stood on a dancerís podium under the nightclub spotlight, the entrepreneur, whose invention is a device which can be clamped around damaged pipe work to provide a temporary repair solution in an emergency, also won the most votes from attendees in the Peopleís Choice Award sponsored by XLN Telecom.

The contestants were judged by a panel of seasoned business brains; Karen Darby, a serial social entrepreneur; Carl Hopkins, marketing expert and star of Channel 4ís The Secret Millionaire and Darren Fell, founder of online accounting company Crunch.

The £50,000 worth of prizes won by Dickinson, who has been a plumber for 10 years, include marketing and advertising solutions from Yell, 12 months mentoring from Karen Darby, a yearís membership of the Forum of Private Business, PR coaching from Do Your Own PR and 12 months membership of Adam Street private members club.
The event, also sponsored by Business Environment, Powwownow, Realex Payments and Crunch, was also the official UK closing party for Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Richard Hanscott, chief executive officer for Yell in the UK, comments: ďThe Pitch is a wonderful showcase of the depth of entrepreneurial talent and itís clear from the quality of the finalists that this is flourishing in local businesses across the UK.
ďRoss and his innovative plumbing product are an outstanding illustration of the drive and passion that are essential in setting up and running your own business. As a champion of local business, we are delighted to be able to help Ross.Ē
Carl Hopkins, The Pitch 2011 judge and founder of kloog, adds: "True innovation comes from solving a problem, and Ross has done just that. Borne of his first hand experience he has come up with a truly innovative and simple solution.
ďHis product is easy to understand, easy to use and memorable. Kibosh ticks all the boxes for both consumers and for investors. I am confident we will see them on the shelves of retailers, the tool boxes of plumbers and in our homes in the future."

Dan Martin, editor of BusinessZone.co.uk, comments: ďOur grand final usually takes place during the day but this year, we decided to do something different and make the competition an evening event at one of Londonís biggest nightclubs. It was a huge success!
ďHaving the entrepreneurs pitching on podiums meant the audience could get up, close and personal to some of Britainís brightest business talent.
ďAll the pitchers did well but Ross Dickison emerged victorious both in the judges and the publicís minds. We wish Kibosh the very best of luck for the future and know that the amazing prize package will help him on the next step in his business journey.Ē
