PitchNRide is a unique event that puts an entrepreneur in the back seat of a cab with an investor. The entrepreneur does not know who the investor is until they get in the cab. They have exactly the time it takes for the cab to circle Tahrir Square to make their pitch. No presentations, just their skills to convey the idea and engage the investor.

There will be a range of investors from angels to VCs. If the investor is really interested they will hand the entrepreneur their business card. The whole thing will be recorded on video and the best will be shown on YouTube during and after RiseUp.

Wamda’s Pitch N’ Mentor is the first of its kind face-to-face pitch-perfecting event in the region. Entrepreneurs join breakout groups with experts as they learn how to perfect their 1-minute elevator pitch for both investors and the media. Attendees are guaranteed to leave with an effective pitch.

This is only a sneak peak, there are more and more waiting for you at the summit. See you there 😉
