The first Pitch ‘n’ Win event in Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MaGIC) in Cyberjaya was made possible thanks to the D.A.R.E. BizStart 2014 event organized by MAD Incubator.
Two demo sessions were organized to showcase Pitch ‘n’ Win as part of the grand event. The first session called Pitch ‘n’ Win @ MaGIC – More Than Just Pitching was organized on 26th November 2014. The Chinese session came on the next day.
Rani Wemel from MyMobileUni.com, who has been great supporter and organizer of Pitch ‘n’ Win since our inception, was given the honor to host the English session. She first welcomed everyone and introduced about Pitch ‘n’ Win.
Participants of one-hour sharing session
About 18 participants attended the 1-hour session. Everyone was given an opportunity to speak about himself or herself for up to 3 minutes. It was more than pitching. Everyone can share anything, from business to startup, from career to passion, in the stipulated time.
The event was gamified in that all of us chose the best 2 presenters among all who presented. Obviously most of us were curious about WeChat marketing and voted for KC Tan and Nick Albert Choo to elaborate more.
The host Rani also presented about herself and her online learning platform MyMobileUni.com. The event was closed by our founder Ricky Soo who elaborated on what Pitch ‘n’ Win is for.
- Collaboration with bigger players help bring more exposure.
- It is indeed more than just pitching in Pitch ‘n’ Win. It’s about sharing anything about yourself.
