Pitch Like A Girl (Rise), our pitch for investors at Metta

On July 12, we were among the 10 female-founded startups selected to pitch at RISE conference Pitch Like a Girl in front of a panel of investors and judges.

What is Pitch Like a Girl?

The first edition of Pitch Like a Girl, organised during RISE 2017 was organized by Next Chapter and Dock at Work to empower women with funding. It is a unique opportunity for women entrepreneurs, attending the conference from around the world, to return with their pockets heavier than when they arrived in Hong Kong.

180+ attendees. 60+ women entrepreneurs from San Francisco, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, South Korea, and Australia-New Zealand among others, submitted applications to pitch. The top 10 finalists pitched in front of our investors on 12 July.

3 minutes to convince 

We had 3 minutes to convince the investors and the public about NO!W mission and business model. Not only was it a very challenging exercise, it was also a great chance to advocate the Zero Waste lifestyle to a large audience. A lot of curious people and as many new NO!W followers!

Even if we were not among the finalists, it was a wonderful opportunity for us to get some feedback from experienced investors.

Congratulations to teams Sharesies, GoSkills, Baby Hero and Ozmo!
