Investment Challenge Instructions

MISSED YOUR CHANCE TO PITCH?

You can still get involved in the pitching competition by becoming an investor!

Watch each of the pitches from the pitching competition, engage with the entrepreneurs live during the Open Space session or leave comments for them any time on the event platform.

Then, you’ll need to adopt the mindset of a venture capitalist to predict which venture will win each of the pitching competition categories: Scholar, Ideation, Lion’s Den and vote using R 1 million in virtual money.

The objective is to see a variety of business ideas from an investor’s perspective because one day you might have to approach an investor for your own business!

By identifying successful businesses, your investment will grow in proportion to the business’s success, just as an investors would, which forms the basis of our scoring system.

HERE’S HOW TO BECOME AN INVESTOR

1. SCOUT
Visit Open Space to watch all of the pitches, ask your questions and engage with the top entrepreneurs who have submitted their pitches.

2. STRATEGISE
Based on your investing instincts, split your virtual R 1 million between your top 3 businesses in Scholarship Ideation, Ideation and Lion’s Den.

3. INVEST
A minimum of R 200 000 needs to be invested in each business. Investments take place by submitting your responses on the form that will be made available on the event platform.
Only one submission per Participant is allowed.

4. WIN
The investors who have made the most accurate predictions can stand to win incredible prizes!

1st Prize: R 5000 AG Unit Trust
2nd: R 3000 AG Unit Trust
3rd: R1000 AG Unit Trust

Should there be an exact tie on investment return, time will be used to determine the winner with the first submission considered to be the leader.
