On March 21, 2024, SocialTech Lab had the privilege of witnessing and evaluating live pitches from four impactful ventures – each addressing pressing issues across regions- as part of the first BOOST: PitchBack series event in collaboration with the UNDP BOOST innovation team.

Highlights of the Event:

  • Live Pitches by Impact Innovators: Four impact ventures, represented by founders from Kazakhstan, Cyprus, Nigeria, and Turkey, told the stories of their innovative solutions tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges in the form of a 3-minute “rocket pitch.”
  • Candid Feedback from Industry Experts:
    Following each pitch, a panel of industry experts provided candid feedback, sharing insights to refine strategies and pitches.
  • Voting and Awards: A live audience had the opportunity to vote for the best startup across a variety of category awards including Best Pitch, Best Social Impact Potential, Most Innovative Idea, and Most Scalable/Replicable Solution.  

BOOST: PitchBack is a series of pitch feedback events designed to enhance the fundraising abilities of startups and social enterprises. These live and interactive online events offer innovators the chance to present their ideas to a panel of impact investors, industry experts, and entrepreneurs, culminating in immediate and practical feedback. The events are organised by UNDP BOOST and SocialTech Lab.

Stay tuned for future editions of BOOST: PitchBack, where we’ll continue to provide innovators with the resources and support they need to make a lasting impact.
