Its owner, Anastasia Elliott, also participated in the pitch competition which featured entrepreneurs providing a synopsis of their company details including growth projections. Heidi Fagerberg with her book project “Plant A Seed” and Ariel Peets and Joseph Stanley of Gyver Technical Services also pitched for the $5000 investment. Yaphene was adjudged the winner.
“Exposure” concluded with entertainment by local groups and individuals featuring poetry, rapping, singing and dancing.
“It was a tremendous success,” explained Ervin Welsh, the founder of Positively Inclined and co-host of the GEW events in St. Kitts and Nevis. “All exhibitors came with an extremely high quality representation of themselves, one which didn’t go unnoticed and one which suggests we will be hearing more about these businesses in the not too distant future.”
