Three Papua New Guinea entrepreneurs to pitch ideas in Vietnam

 THREE Papua New Guinea entrepreneurs will pitch their business ideas at an Asia-Pacific regional finals climate launch-pad event – a clean-tech and green technology ideas competition in Vietnam.

The three are Lloyd Koris, Slyney Tau and Miranda Uakai, whose innovative visions caught the eyes of the judges and industry experts.

Emstret Space is an advocate of remote working facilitated climate launch-pad national pitch competition that saw 100 applications showcasing their projects from May to July.

Emstret Space lead facilitator Vani Nades said out of the 100 applications, 44 were selected for an intensive mini-course.

This was cut to 10 presenting their projects through a boot-camp.

From there, five went on to present their pioneering business ideas on Thursday.

“Papua New Guinea is a hub of ingenious business ideas that possess the potential to make a global impact,” Nades said.

“Emstret Space takes pride in being part of this journey and aligns this initiative with our vision to empower entrepreneurs and witness their remarkable success.”

The presentations were assessed based on criteria such as creativity, feasibility, impact, and sustainability.

“As the regional finals approach, the three outstanding participants are looking forward to a stringent pitch mentorship programme to fine-tune their business presentations.

“This mentorship is seen as a vital component in their preparation for the regional stage, aiming for success and recognition on an international platform.

“Emstret Space congratulates the triumphant entrepreneurs and extends its best wishes as they prepare for the Asia-Pacific finals.

“Their accomplishments not only contribute to the growth of the PNG entrepreneurial landscape, but also bolster the global mission for sustainable and impactful innovations.”
