Freetown Pitch Night

17.03.22

Last night the regular Freetown Pitch Night took place but this was the first time Aurora Foundation participated as an official partner with Innovation SL.

The event was themed ‘Fempreneur’ and four women pitched their businesses. Piloya Grace Nollah pitched her business Sons and Daughters (SADA-SL), Olive Porter her business Wisdom World Coconut Water, Dusu Mansaray pitched her business called Ankara by Dex and finally the winner of the night, Eugenia Jin-Hi Pearce pitched her business Tyfer Closet which focuses primarily on producing and selling baby booties with the aim of targeting single mothers from a low socio-economic background.

We congratulate all pitchers on their performances and thank the jury members for their contribution to the event. Last but not least, we extend our thanks to the audience and we look forward to collaborating again for the next Pitch Night!
