Perfecting our pitch!
Our Yiya team is busily getting ready for the upcoming MIT Solve 2018 Challenge Finals during UN General Assembly week in New York City. Yiya was among 15 finalists working in the education sector who were selected to do a live pitch at this premier social impact event!
Yiya partner and incubator ResilientAfrica Network (RAN) has been so supportive of our team as we prep for our big pitch! They hosted a mock pitch event for Yiya cofounder Samson Wambuzi to practice the Yiya pitch in front of a live audience of local experts in the social impact sector, who then gave us feedback on the presentation and content of our pitch.
Many thanks to representatives from RAN, Unreasonable East Africa, Thin Void, and Hridaya Yoga & Wholehearted Health for attending this pitch and giving us their feedback. Many thanks also to Natembea Foundation and Impact Business Leaders for supporting us remotely and sending their advice and suggestions on the pitch as well!
