Emstret Space celebrates success of entrepreneurs

Emstret Space celebrates success of three entrepreneurs advancing to the Asia-Pacific regional finals after Climate Launchpad National Pitch Competition in Papua New Guinea.

Amidst a competitive pool of 100 applicants who showcased their ingenious projects from May to July, 44 exceptional ventures were selected for an intensive mini-course.

Following this, 10 remarkable projects progressed to the highly anticipated Bootcamp, a crucial stage in the competition.

Five aspiring entrepreneurs had the privilege of presenting their pioneering business ideas to a panel of four esteemed local judges during the National Pitch Competition on Thursday 21st of September 2023.

The presentations were assessed based on criteria such as creativity, feasibility, impact, and sustainability.

In a remarkable display of ingenuity and determination, three participants emerged as frontrunners, securing the highest scores and earning the honour to represent Papua New Guinea at the Asia-Pacific Regional Finals to be hosted by Vietnam.

The triumphant entrepreneurs include Lloyd Koris, Slyney Tau, and Miranda E Uakai, whose innovative visions have caught the eye of the judges and industry experts.

As the regional finals approach, the three outstanding participants are looking forward to a stringent pitch mentorship program to fine-tune their business presentations.

This mentorship is seen as a vital component in their preparation for the regional stage, aiming for success and recognition on an international platform.

Vani K Nades, the Lead Facilitator at Emstret Space, expressed her immense pleasure in showcasing the entrepreneurial talent present in Papua New Guinea.
