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.

    • Newspapers have their role and will continue to be a focus of media organizations even in this information age but once Mobile/Internet Penetration has reached everyone then i foresee the quick decline of Print Media. With that all said none the less print media is more definitive on there information and the details due to the fact that there are bad websites out there intent at bad info.
