PREPARING THE PERFECT PITCH
Pitching is one of the most powerful and fundamental tools an entrepreneur can have. In fact, it is core to everyone’s work and life. However, for entrepreneurs, it enables them to present their business case in a clear and concise manner, and help the audience make an informed decision as to whether to invest or purchase the product. As the TechTribe Community aims to capacitate founders and help them become investment ready, we thought a pitching workshop would be beneficial to polish those pitching skills and equip entrepreneurs (maybe that’s you?) with the right tools.
On Wednesday, February 24, 2021, the TechTribe Community hosted a very insightful pitching workshop for members of the community aimed to upskill and provide founders with tips on how to prepare and deliver a good pitch. The workshop took us through the different types of pitches, how to prepare a pitch, understanding the importance of a good pitch and the dos and don’ts.
Titled ‘Preparing for the Perfect Pitch’, the workshop was presented by Entrepreneurial Leadership Coach and Consultant, Dikatso Sephoti, and Communications & Engagement Manager, from mHub Malawi, Yolanda Bulirani.
With participants joining in from various parts of SADC, West Africa and as far as China, it was evident that the TechTribe Community members are serious about pitching and taking Africa forward.
The workshop was very interactive, with break-away sessions where teams could collaborate and prepare their elevator pitches for evaluation by the presenters. This was fun and we saw some networking connections being made in the chat.
Here is a recap of some of the questions the participants had for the hosts and their responses:
