On February 29th, COMMON and Design Indaba will host COMMON Pitch: “A Party To Fix the World” in Cape Town, South Africa. Ten entrepreneurs will have five minutes to deliver the pitch of a lifetime to a live and virtual audience at City Hall in Cape Town.
The entry deadline closed a few days ago, and now judges begin the task of whittling down the contestant pool to those with the most innovative concepts for social enterprise. The winner will walk with a team of supporters, mentors and $25,000 to start their business.
But Cape Town is far. If you’re in NY, check out COMMON Pitch NYC at Brooklyn Bowl on February 15th.
COMMON Pitch NYC will look towards the next generation of consumption by asking one important question: What if there’s already enough to go around? Featuring the creative new business concepts of eight hand-picked, competing entrepreneurs, this pitch-meets-party will spotlight some of today’s most exciting new social technologies for borrowing, sharing or trading the things we all need.
