Judge Better Volume 1
Organizing Entrepreneurship Competitions that Optimize Learning
About the Book
Entrepreneurship pitch competitions often follow a certain formula: pitch, win a prize, and hope for success. When participants take the stage, the pressure to perform is on! But what if you could create more value for the entrepreneurs through your pitch competition? How might the entrepreneur or their business enjoy longevity as a result? What skills could they gain through the process to attain more success? How can monetary value be put to intentional use to see more sustainable businesses? For ten consecutive years, we have run Africa’s top competition for very young entrepreneurs, where the 20 finalists pitch their ventures for a chance to win the grand prize. Well after this exhilarating experience, these entrepreneurs become Anzisha Prize Fellows and gain access to the financial and networking support they need to succeed. Download this book and discover lessons and strategies to facilitate more learning through your entrepreneurship competition.
