In order to get ourselves prepared for the final pitching, Demola arrange mid-pitching event at the New Factory for all the teams. This was the time when we had to impress the audience to show what we have been doing and showcase our results.
This was not an easy task since we had to merge all our work at a single place. We had to brainstorm on how to convey our message to the audience and to impress them. The mid pitching event was set to take place on 14th of April 2016. All of us scheduled a meeting to meet on the Monday 18th of April 2016. There we discuss our plan on how to prepare for our presentation, what things to pitch, what to include and what not to. Furthermore, we also decided upon the person who will be pitching in front of the audience.
The moment we all have been waiting for eventually arrived. Our team was scheduled to pitch in the batch 2 that started at 15:30. All of us were feeling anxious as we sat there and watched all the other teams pitching before us and receiving feedback. The most tensed person among all of us was our Project Manager Elisa as she was chosen to give the pitch. Finally the moment arrived and Elisa was present at the stage all set to make a pitch. She started off brilliantly with a story about a fisherman getting affected by a tsunami and relating it to the audience. Those 3 minutes of pitching were crucial but in the end everything went of smooth and we were given a positive and constructive feedback. This helped us reflect on our project and to further improve it for the final pitching event. In the end combination of teamwork, plenty of meetings and hard work paid off. Thanks to everyone who helped us directly and indirectly in achieving our goal and make Anna Community to this point.
