We held June edition of Techpoint Pitch Friday last week and it turned out to be yet another two hours of interactive conversation. Barring a slow start, due to the initial low turn out of participants, the event would finally go on smoothly.
On the evening, another five budding entrepreneurs were given the opportunity to share their business idea to the audience.
Paul Israel, who happens to be the first pitcher on the night, took the opportunity with a gracious gleefulness.

Interestingly, the measurements process uses machine learning and computer vision to deduce users body measurements from pictures and height.
Sylvia Udemeh (Bridgebooks)
Her Mantra is to create sustainable businesses by providing a framework that supports financial literacy and inclusion for businesses in Africa.
Nnamdi Onyechi (Qwive)
Qwive helps customers select the best local service provider in their locality based on user reviews and recommendations.
The review and rating system enables verified artisans to get booked quickly from the Qwive site.
Otega Oluwaseun (Immediate cash)
In a space that is constantly experiencing innovation, Otega is planning to make a bold statement with his idea of Immediate Cash. Immediate cash is a financial service platform that attempts to bring the banks to the customer (as against the other way round) through agency banking and cash bank points.
We take pride in announcing that the name Immediate Cash was coined right at the Techpoint office, few hours before Otega was called upon to make his pitch.
End of activity
Feedback was provided to the pitchers after each pitch session and at the end of the day, a good number of the audience passed a vote of confidence for these products.
The next edition of Techpoint Pitch Friday comes up on the 14th of July, 2018.
