Eshan, a participant from last year shares “I had pitched my idea once before at Startup Weekend Dhaka. I took the same idea to pitch2win and it didn’t do well. However it gave me the courage to keep going with my idea for the last one year. I will give it another year. There is a prototype now and I hope to keep working on it. Pitch Clinic session really helped me. It gave me the right push. It helps people understand what exactly to do and how to do it.”
