VIDEO: In it to win it – pitch like an expert!

2015 Second place winner, Strawberry Mphore, receives R30 000 for her early childhood development centre business idea.

Now in its eighth year, ENGEN Pitch & Polish has helped 10 000 entrepreneurs improve the way they present their business to potential investors. Having a polished pitch is the key to growing your business.

THIS WEEKEND, all delegates will be taken through unique, experience-based entrepreneurial training, developed by Raizcorp during the first part of the day. Best-selling author, international speaker and TV talk-show host, Justin Cohen, will be the facilitator this year.

“ENGEN Pitch & Polish allows me to combine my two major passions, personal development and entrepreneurship, in a way that effects real change. I look forward to seeing you there,” said Justin.

After Justin’s training, contestants will be given the opportunity to pitch their idea or business to the audience. Contestants can improve their pitches based on feedback from both Justin and the audience.
