At least seventeen youths have seen their businesses grow thanks to the Zomba Pitch Night organized by Center for Free Market Enterprise (CFME).
Executive Director for CFME Peter Yakobe made the revelation when YFM online was enquiring on the impact the pitch night has had since it was introduced.
Yakobe said they follow up the youths who pitch their business ideas after six months in order to establish if there’s any progress.
He said he was impressed with the progress which businesses have made.
The young entrepreneur said his entity will continue imparting knowledge on the young entrepreneurs so that their businesses flourish.
Yakobe also disclosed that his company will hold the first pitch night for the year this month.
CFME started organizing pitch night in 2014.
