ASPIRING entrepreneurs in the Free State who want to see their business ideas bear fruit, will get a chance to do so through the Engen Pitch & Polish workshop programme and competition to be held in Bloemfontein on 3 September.

It is open to all potential and established entrepreneurs and will offer candidates an opportunity to make their ideas take root.

All they need to do to achieve their goal is participate in the entrepreneurial workshop and competition programme. This initiative is the only programme of its kind in South Africa listed on the ANDE Entrepreneur Ecosystem Map as a capacity development provider.

Why should you attend? Because during one exhilarating free day, you will discover, in a learning and feedback environment, how to polish your pitch in the most professional manner, together with an audience to encourage you to go for gold, while simultaneously learning with you.

You can learn how to instantly transform your idea into reality and how to reach for the sky.

Register now to participate and gain all the benefits you can from this valuable experience, brought to you by Engen Petroleum Ltd., Nedbank, Raizcorp and SAfm and supported by the Youth Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Interested candidates must register as a delegate for the workshop, or, if you are bold enough, go ahead and complete an entry form and stand the chance of being selected as a contestant.

When completing the entry form, here are some insider tips to consider:

  • Include your full name and the name of your business or business idea.
