Sustain a-Pitch Essay Challenge | Stand A Chance to Win N150,000 + Interrnships

Applications are currently invited from suitably qualified persons for the 2023 Sustain a-pitch challenge by The Pitch 3.0.

About the Challenge:

Welcome to the Sustain-a-Pitch Challenge, presented by The Pitch 3.0!

This competition is a battleground for Nigerian undergraduates, where they will compete in teams to provide pragmatic and scalable solutions to aid financial actors in deploying capital to maximize impact in developing nations of Africa. The competition is a call to action, aimed at inspiring competitors to generate solutions that will tackle the current climate crises, and help financial actors implement change that is truly impactful.

As a competitor, you hold the power to create a framework that will either guide public actors such as policymakers and regulators towards sustainable investments or create a blueprint for private actors like investment banks, venture capitalists, private equity firms, and asset managers to invest in climate-linked securities and sustainable firms.

The clock is ticking, so put on your thinking caps and bring your A-game! We are excited to see the innovative ideas and thoughtful recommendations you will present to us. So, let the challenge begin, and may the best team win!
