Purpose of Pitch ‘n’ Win

The main purpose of Pitch ‘n’ Win is to empower common folks to take the stage, present something and perhaps get the opportunity to collaborate with other members for uncommon ventures. To enable it to be people-friendly, we designed the Pitch ‘n’ Win event model to minimize all hindrances for anyone to join, including financial hindrances.

Toward this end, we need to help and satisfy all stakeholders involved. These stakeholders includes the event participants, speakers, organizers, and Pitch ‘n’ Win itself.

The event participants are attracted to the events because some of them want to share, present and speak up, while some of them want to listen to ideas and sharing by others, connect to potential collaborators, and even meet new friends.

Some event series have featured speakers, either invited speakers from outside or the event organizers themselves. In any case, they get to speak from 5 minutes to 1 hour depending on the event series. They get to share their knowledge and experience to the group. They are also free to give infomercial and promote anything related that they offer. The main benefits for the speakers are exposure, networking and promotion.

Event organizers are the owner of individual event series affiliated to Pitch ‘n’ Win. They organize the events, most probably host them, and follow up with the participants after the events. By being a Pitch ‘n’ Win organizers, they get to adopt the validated Pitch ‘n’ Win event model to benefit their participants and themselves. They get to network with all who participate, increase their exposure, raise their profile, collect permission-based mailing list, build a tribe of followers, among other benefits.

For Pitch ‘n’ Win, working with event organizers and benefiting everyone in the process helps grow the social movement to achieve its purpose to turn around events and empower common folks to speak up.
