Why these pitching sessions?
In an effort to realise the legacy ambitions of WDC 2014 we′d like to see as many of the recognised projects as possible brought to fruition and growth. These pitching sessions aim to:

  • Showcase the projects, what they are offering and what they need – in terms of funding, capacity and collaborations.
  • Expose projects to potential backers, through both large investments and crowdfunding.
  • Invite the public and business community to identify projects they would like to support.

Who should attend?

  • Businesses looking for transformational innovators to mentor or support in cash or kind.
  • Investors and philanthropists – whether you have R500 or R1million to give.
  • Government planners who would like to support citizen initiatives.
  • Anyone interested in World Design Capital Cape Town 2014 projects.
  • Media who want to tell these great stories.

Time: Arrival 5 for 5.30pm. Start 5.30pm. Pitches until 8.30pm. Networking after.
