Workshop // How to move your pitch from good to great

March 3, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

startup pitch

The world has already invented ways to address the societal issues that we face, be it poverty, diseases or any other challenges that we face as humans.

Despite all these great interventions, most of them don’t reach the last mile at mass scale. In fact, most pitches are pretty good and hit all the key components of a pitch, but only a handful of those take it a step further o be really great.

So what sets the excellent pitches apart from the rest?  How do you create the skills and ambition to form and grow your organization and deliver these interventions to the people who need them most?

Join Will Snider, Operations Lead, D-Prize, for a workshop on how you can make a good pitch and make it great, and the kind of pitch that stands out to investors, too.

The workshop will also feature a team from D-Prize who will walk you through an exercise after highlighting some of the things they look for in startups when they apply for the D-Prize competition, which offers winners up to $20,000 to launch a pilot to change the world. Get more about the D-Prize competition here!

The event will take place on Tuesday, 3rd March at Nairobi Garage // Karen from 10 am.
