Pitch for Good Parramatta 2023 - Pitch Night!
Are you passionate about supporting positive change in Parramatta?
Pitch for Good presents five inspiring social entrepreneurs pitching their new ideas for social enterprises that they hope to establish in Parramatta.
The participants have been given training to create an engaging crowdfunding campaign on StartSomeGood to raise funds and garner support to help get their project off the ground
Instead of giving all the decision-making power to a panel of judges, Pitch for Good empowers you as a member of the audience to select your favorites and donate the value of your $30 ticket to their project. This amount will then be doubled by the City of Parramatta, so your $30 becomes $60, which will then go towards kickstarting their crowdfunding campaign.
This on-and off-line combination of campaigning for their impact project helps them overcome the greatest challenge in crowdfunding – how to get the early traction which validates their idea and carries their story far enough to succeed. Be part of supporting their success by buying a ticket and voting on the night.
In addition to the pitches there will be stalls run by local social enterprises and food included in your ticket price.
The participants who will be pitching their social impact projects on the night:
- Sally Irwin - The Freedom Hub on a mission to end modern slavery. Raising funds for a Parramatta HQ
- Joe Kwon - CONFIT - supporting ex-convicts to follow a career in personal training as a way to rebuild their life. Raising funds for the launch of a CONFIT gym in Parramatta.
- Sujan Selventhiran - Upcycled Tech - Provision of tech equipment and devices to be upcycled to improve the lives and well-being of those in need - financially/socially disadvantaged migrants/refugees. Raising funds to expand their offering in the Parramatta area.
- Charlene Bordley - Parramatta Bike Tours - Moving PARRA Matters - Promoting Active Transport: Enhancing Workplace Well-being through Riding a Bike
