The best pitch from a UCT student could win them the chance to turn their business idea into reality thanks to a R25 000 prize.

Four successful entrepreneurs are standing by to assess and analyse your business pitch, with a grand prize of R25 000 and mentorship for six months up for grabs in The Pitch.

The event, run by the University of Cape Town’s Academic Representatives’ Council, is split into two categories; your business must still be in either the idea phase or the testing phase, and you must be a current UCT student to enter.

No matter what problem you aim to solve, or what market you plan to enter, if your idea is fresh and innovative you could well find yourself in the running for a significant financial boost. All applicants will get the chance to attend an entrepreneurial workshop at the Hasso Plattner School of Design Thinking (d-school) on 23 March.

If you are among the eight finalists selected by the panel, you will pitch in person to the entrepreneurs at an event on 9 May, to be attended by Vice-Chancellor Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng and an audience of about 450.

Applications close at 16:00 on 15 March.
