6 Reasons To Attend #PitchIt

by Joanna Waweru 

In case you haven't heard, The Arena is hosting a youth building and networking, fun and enlightening, competition based event. That was a bit of a mouthful, so how about we break it down and show you what you can get out of the event:

1. Networking opportunities.

People need people. Pitch It guarantees a great opportunity to meet new, like minded people. Whether it be the beginning of fruitful friendships or the building of contacts that will be valuable to the progression of your career, Pitch It provides a space to make it happen.

2. Get motivation from the participants.

As you listen to the participants pitch their ideas, you are bound to be inspired to think about the ways in which you can participate in changing your community for the better.

3. Learn about entrepreneurship.

Have a business idea brewing but are a little confused or fearful about taking the next step? Come and learn about the different aspects that go into making a business work. Ask those who have been there. Learn more about how to overcome the challenges that you may be facing.

4. Keep up with new ideas.

Get educated on the new developments taking place in various sectors, as the ideas being presented are unconventional. This will enable you be more knowledgeable in not just your field but other fields as well.

5. Vote for the best idea.

What sets Pitch It apart from other start-up competitions? You get to vote first-hand for the idea that you think should receive funding. The democratic decision making process ensures that everyone's interests are represented.

6. Have fun.

Pitch It not only gives you the opportunity to connect with others and learn something new, but also to have fun! A day out meeting new people cannot compare to staying indoors. Socializing over food and a drink, which will be provided at the event, for only 500/= is a win!

Evidently, there is absolutely no reason why you should miss Pitch It.
