WATCH: Engen Pitch&Polish will be in Johannesburg in September


Engen Pitch & Polish will be in Joburg this year to host their free entrepreneurial training workshop and competition.

The event will be held at the Braamfontein Recreation Centre on 9 September starting at 9 am.

Engen Pitch & Polish has collaborated with Engen Petroleum, Nedbank, Raizcorp, and partnered with two major media houses, SAfm and Caxton Local Media.

According to the organisers, this culminates in a final event held in Joburg where the winners of the regional rounds compete to be crowned the ultimate pitch champion of 2017.

Spokesperson and project manager for the event, Bronwyn Echardt from Raizcorp, said it’s a fabulous opportunity for all to attend.

Echardt said whether you are looking to start, or you have already established a business, the Engen Pitch & Polish entrepreneurial workshop and competition programme is where you want to be.

“Now in its eighth year, Engen Pitch & Polish has helped approximately 10 000 entrepreneurs to improve the way they present their business to potential funders. Having a polished pitch is the key to growing your business,” said Echardt.

During the first part of the day, all delegates will be taken through unique, experience-based entrepreneurial training, developed by Raizcorp – described by The Economist as “the only genuine incubator in Africa”.

This year’s facilitator is best-selling author, international speaker and TV talk-show host, Justin Cohen.

“Engen Pitch & Polish allows me to combine my two major passions – personal development and entrepreneurship – in a way that effects real change. I look forward to seeing you there,” said Cohen.

After Cohen’s inspirational message and training, contestants will be given the opportunity to pitch their idea or business to the audience. This is where the day heats up as contestants improve their pitches based on feedback from both Justin and the audience, said Echardt.

Contestants must work hard to ensure that the answer to the question, “Would you invest in this person?” is a resounding “Yes!”

Register as a delegate to attend the workshop for free and learn valuable lessons, including:

  • How to turn your idea into a business
  • How to connect with like-minded individuals
  • How to take your business to the next level,
  • How to pitch your business to potential investors or bank managers

Delegates and contestants are urged to be on time for the event.
