InfoDev, a Global World Bank initiative, has an expanded Operation to the Caribbean with the launch of a pitch competition dubbed ‘PitchItCaribbean’.

What is a pitch?

A pitch is a presentation in which you articulate your business’ proposition as clearly as possible to an audience through a Powerpoint/keynote presentation and live presentation. We will provide you with a pitch template to use, and lots of online references that will help you prepare your pitch.

How to enter

All details on the competition are posted to the following Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/pitchITCaribbean

In order to enroll in this competition, participants must submit an 11-page pitch presentation in PDF format based on the template uploaded to: http://www.slideshare.net/pitchITCaribbean/pitch-it-caribbean-pitch-deck-template
