In celebrating Women’s History Month in March, Launch Namibia’s first pitch night of 2021 was duly themed and titled: The Women’s Edition – a platform that afforded innovative, female minds the opportunity to share their business ideas, spread across several industries.
The virtual event, that took place on Thursday, March 25th 2021, at the Windhoek Palm Hotel (Conference Hall), afforded brilliant entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their concept to a panel of judges, and an online audience.
The Jumbo Pitch Night accommodated a top five (5) cohort of finalists, out of which, two finalists were crowned the winners; namely Vernna Muronga, who pitched an animation & film studio concept, and Emily Kandanga, who pitched a line of physical fitness products.
Each winner received a start-up hamper including a cash prize, business registration, a company design package and more, to the value of N$20,000.
The Women’s Edition was made possible by The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), through its Accelerator Lab.
