UN SDG PITCH AND GRILL
This pitch and grill was like no other, from its title “pitch and grill” to our partners who showed up as well as the caliber of social innovators who readily came on board to share their innovative solutions, the event took the spotlight. In our bid to create the perfect ambience of entrepreneurial support to our local community of social entrepreneurs, the creative in our space decided to design a bridge that connects investors to start-up entrepreneurs in order to have closer interaction between social innovators and potential investors. In March 2018, Civic Innovation Lab gave her innovators opportunity to pitch their business ideas in the hopes of getting these investors to invest in their business. We had an overwhelming presence from our development partners and investors. We put our social innovators under limelight by ensuring that they are at the right place at the right time.
