Pitch Bootcamp

Programme description

Pitch Bootcamp is a 2-day programme that joins students and recent-graduates with companies. During the first day, students receive training on self-value discovery, market segmentation and value proposition design. On day 2, students put what they have learned into practice by pitching themselves to the companies present. Students will get feedback on how they can improve their value proposition to companies and on how to make an informed decision when it comes to choosing between different career paths. This will ultimately lead to work opportunities and empowering youngsters to making informed decisions about which career paths to pursue.

Goals and target

However, the event is open to anyone who aims to understand more about themselves and their positioning relatively to the market.
