Why pitch at SiGMA?

Legitimization, global visibility and fundraising opportunities are just three of the pluri-faceted benefits previous Start-up Pitch winners have discovered. The most recent SiGMA Pitch was held in Manila during the SiGMA Asia International Summit where Credexon emerged victorious. PalletPal, winners of the Startup Pitch in Dubai at AIBC in 2021, say, “A word to the wise – if you are a startup or entrepreneur considering whether or not to participate in such an event, just remember this: There is no better way to practice pitching, affirm your problem statement, and validate your solution than by taking the stage and telling your story. Win or lose, the experience will only make you stronger.”
