TikTok in partnership with The Gritti Fund, the world’s first purpose-driven and happiness-focused investment fund, have launched the Pitch Up in The Sky program which they’re calling innovative and daring, and the world’s first elevator pitching event of its kind.

Pitch Up in The Sky is the ultimate elevator pitch for daring entrepreneurs who can overcome their fears and stay cool under pressure. The funding initiative will provide African entrepreneurs with the opportunity to compete for a $10,000 investment and one-year mentorship from The Gritti Fund. In addition, three finalists will be awarded the once in a lifetime chance to skydive in Dubai, while simultaneously completing their winning elevator pitches. What???

An expert panel will judge entries and give exclusive personal interviews throughout the event about the challenges that lead to their success. It will feature world-famous entrepreneurs and venture capitalists including Founding Executive of Netflix – Mitch Lowe; first investor in Zoom – Bill Tai; and inventor of Google Maps – Lars Rasmussen. The spectacular finale on 17 October aims to be the most live-streamed start-up pitch event in history and will enable millions of TikTok viewers to discover who has what it takes to reach the top.

Now open to all founders of early-stage start-ups in Africa and the Middle East until 24 September 2020, entrepreneurs can apply to www.pitchupinthesky.com by submitting an innovative one-minute TikTok video pitch that will inform and impress the global panel of expert judges, using the platform’s easy-to-use video editing tools and tagging #PitchUpInTheSky.

As part of the initiative, local TikTok users will be able to view the pitches tagged #PitchUpInTheSky as well as interviews with the judging panel of world-famous entrepreneurs and venture capitalists, giving entrants and TikTok users insight on their personal challenges and successes.
