Have an idea, but not sure where to go next?

#MENAsprint can help you.

Pitchworthy’s sprint programs are designed to help you develop your idea, test key assumptions, and learn powerful startup skills … all in a fun environment.

You’ll have the chance to work with people with deep expertise in the startup process, and alongside a community of other inspiring young people.

Let’s work together to solve some big problems, and do amazing things. 🤘🏾

If you want to go fast, go alone.

If you want to go far, go together.

If you want to go fast and far, go with Pitchworthy.

What previous participants have said:

Thank you Pitchworthy team, My project went a long way. At the beginning, it was an abstract idea. Now it’s very grounded in the user’s needs and problems, and it is very tangible now.
— Youth entrepreneur
I didn’t just progress 1% everyday, I probably progressed like 50% everyday. I got better myself as a person in different aspects. My business model also changed a lot to the better.
— First-time founder
I don’t know about you people but I already feel like I belong. A few calls and webinars away I started making friends and chatting with people and it was super nice!

Built on Excellence

Our team has worked at, studied at, and partnered with many global innovation leaders, such as:


This program has been a big help for me. Something I never told anyone about is my fear of public speaking [...] I gave feedback and helped a lot of people, and a lot helped me too, and this is amazing, the community is very friendly and helpful. I never thought I could improve that much from an online program.
