Learn bet­ter ways to pitch your busi­ness

The Herald (South Africa) - - BUSINESS - Her­ald Re­porter

THE pop­u­lar En­gen Pitch & Pol­ish free en­tre­pre­neur­ial train­ing work­shop and com­pe­ti­tion will be held in Port El­iz­a­beth early next month and regis­tra­tion is now open for bud­ding Bay en­trepreneurs.

Di­rected at those look­ing to start their own busi­ness and even those al­ready in busi­ness, the En­gen Pitch & Pol­ish event will be staged on Novem­ber 4.

Now in its eighth year and based on the ra­tio­nale that hav­ing a pol­ished pitch is key to grow­ing a busi­ness, the ini­tia­tive has helped about 10 000 en­trepreneurs to im­prove the way they present their busi­ness to po­ten­tial fun­ders.

Dur­ing the first part of the day, all del­e­gates will be taken through ex­pe­ri­ence-based en­tre­pre­neur­ial train­ing, de­vel­oped by Raiz­corp – de­scribed by The Econ­o­mist as the only gen­uine incubator in Africa.

This year’s fa­cil­i­ta­tor is best-sell­ing au­thor, in­ter­na­tional speaker and TV talk-show host Justin Co­hen.

“En­gen Pitch & Pol­ish al­lows me to com­bine my two ma­jor pas­sions – per­sonal de­vel­op­ment and en­trepreneur­ship – in a way that ef­fects real change,” Co­hen said.
