Sponsored by GAIN, law firm Foot Anstey and accountancy practice Francis Clark, it will see six South West-based entrepreneurs pitching live to an audience of senior executives, business angels, retired bosses and entrepreneurs, in a bid to find people who can help them build their management teams so they can grow.
Amongst the companies pitching will be an online travel company looking for a commercial manager, a biomedical company seeking a commercial director and sales and marketing professionals, a tech software company looking for business partners and a med-tech company, based at Tamar Science Park (TSP), looking for assistance with direction to support the company's growth potential

Also, Simon Chamberlain, founder of business growth consultancy Ultimate Succession, and TSP chairman, will speak about growth strategies.
GAIN, founded by Plymouth University, Plymouth City Council and TSP, is partnering Pitching for Management as part of its objective to accelerate the creation, growth and investment in high-quality businesses.
Julian Beer, Plymouth University's Pro Vice-Chancellor, said: "Entrepreneurial businesses create the innovation, employment and wealth that will drive us out of this recession.
"We want to support people in their bids to create the global businesses of tomorrow. One of the best ways we can do that is by helping them to build great teams.
"Pitching for Management is proven to be an effective, efficient way to achieve that."
Richard Coombs, a partner at sponsor Foot Anstey, said: "People are collaborating more to help each other. Pitching for Management is a great example of this – talented and experienced sales, marketing and finance directors, CEOs, chairmen and NEDs offer their expertise and support, full- or part-time basis, to our city's entrepreneurs.
"That combination causes exponential growth and makes the companies attractive to investors."
Mark Greaves of Francis Clark, said: "We like Pitching for Management because it solves the problem of getting the right team in place, especially before there is cash to pay salaries.
"With the right team in place it is possible to attract funding."
Pitching For Management takes place tomorrow at Foot Anstey's Salt Quay House building, in Sutton Harbour from 4pm to 7pm.
