Brilliantly designed to create new entrepreneurs, and help existing SMMEs, the workshops are free.

The format contains both a workshop and competition element. Participants take part in a free day-long entrepreneurial event. Contestants "pitch" their business idea to the audience (participants) who then decide whether or not they would invest in them as entrepreneurs. A facilitator gives tips and guidance, helped by the audience, to "polish" the pitch.
Come to the workshop to think and see entrepreneurship differently. Benefit from the learning in business, communication, presentation skills and finance fundamentals. brandhouse Pitch & Polish also helps to encourage an entrepreneurial culture by engaging the wider community.
A total of R150 000 will be given away as prizes. Everyone leaves the workshop enriched! To thank everyone for their participation and in addition to the priceless learning experience and opportunity, everyone enjoys a tasty lunch - also free - and will leave with a special gift from sponsors Brandhouse Beverages, Engen Petroleum Ltd., Raizcorp and media partner SAfm.
