Words from Past Attendees:
“I was invited to join Pitch Night as a Feedback Panelist to provide insights to a competitive cohort of local and international entrepreneurs. Well organized, comprehensive, and approachable, I found the event productive and inspiring, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! “– Ludovica Mazzucato, MBA M.Sc. Sr. Advisor & C-suite Executive
“Thank you so much for everything from Volition, you have made a huge difference in our journey and of course- in the community at large.” – Volition Pitch Night Winner
“It was nice to hear some innovative ideas and businesses being worked on locally. I really enjoyed hearing feedback on pitches to help pitchers practice in a supportive environment.” – Amy Henderson, HR Manager News360, Industry Pitch Night Attendee
“I really enjoyed the event and found it incredibly useful. I was actually pitching for my non profit again on Saturday and won an award which includes a cash prize for the organisation, and I think the feedback I got from the Volition event was really instrumental in helping me improve my pitch for that. So thank you!!” – Volition Women’s Pitch Night Amsterdam Runner-Up
