CAPITAL.com.my organized its 5th pitching event on 9th October 2014 evening in co-working space Trep Alley in Serdang. The angel investor network has been the only Pitch ‘n’ Win organizer coming from an investor background.
Before the event Pitch ‘n’ Win CAPITAL #5 started at 5pm, the video Top 10 Business Model Pitfalls by Ash Maurya from Running Lean was shown to the participants who came in earlier. Then everyone also got a chance to briefly introduce themselves to the whole group.
The event proper started with an introduction to Pitch ‘n’ Win and CAPITAL.com.my by the host. Then the 6 presenters of the evening were invited on stage to present for 5 minutes each.
The ideas and business opportunities presented varied from new fresh ideas to existing business ventures. The crowd were attentive to whoever presenting on stage. Questions were raised and replies were given by the presenters.
After the pitches, the audience went through a round of voting. The quality of pitches was quite high, that it was a hard time to choose one winner out of the 6 pitchers. William Tan, the founder of CAPITAL.com.my, also spoke on his angel investor platform after the voting.
