In early 2014, the Pitch ‘n’ Win platform was reinvented with the launch of 3 new event series. These included Pitch ‘n’ Win CAPITAL, Pitch ‘n’ Speak and Pitch ‘n’ Coach, thanks to collaboration with different organizers.
Pitch ‘n’ Win CAPITAL is the first event series where we finally had an event where participants could pitch to investors. Before that, our events had been more on sharing on own businesses and ideas.
Pitch ‘n’ Speak is an event series where participants can practise their two-minute impromptu speech and relate the topic given to their businesses. A speech coach is present to give feedback to the presenters.
Pitch ‘n’ Coach is an event series where a coach speaker is invited to speak on a certain business or self-development topic. Then the participants present their questions and cases, vote for the top 2 cases for coaching by the coach and discussion by all.
Other new event series also emerged. We have learned first to validate a new event idea by doing a trial event, before committing to a regular event series and a partnership with a potential event organizer.
Some early event organizers did quit along the way. We learned whom to collaborate with and how. But even more organizers joined into the organizing team in 2014. In April 2014, the number of active organizers stood at 12, being helped by a few helpers. The organizing team consisted of 19 members in April. Over 57 events have been organized.
