Pitchfest2021 Series: Eastern Edition

Imuka Access / News / Pitchfest2021 Series: Eastern Edition

The 2nd Regional Pitchfest Edition was the Eastern Region which was scheduled to take place at Wash and Wills Hotel in Mbale, however because of the surging cases of Corona Virus, the 2021 lockdown was instituted nationally and thus the Event was conducted Online on the 1st July, 2021 through the Zoom Livestreaming Service. Shifting Online affected over 50% of entrepreneurs who were meant to participate but were not techsavvy and could not access or adapt to the online platform changes. We ended up with 10 enterprises pitching and 9 out of the 10 were matched with prospective financiers.
