Kehsha Wilmot participated in Pitch101 at Mount St Vincent University a few years back. Here what she has to say about how Pitch101 helped her business in this week’s Pitcher’s Podium:
“My idea was to create a digital, indigenous culture space. To bring culture to the internet, allowing the distance between people to be removed. The ‘Digital Powwow’ was designed to make space for Indigenous and non-indigenous individuala to be able to take part in events they do not have the resources to physically get to.
The Pitch101 event gave me space to work though my thoughts with others. This was done through the workshop style and the time given to discuss your idea with others. This provided space for the community to engage, because we are stronger together.”
