Fast Pitch offers social innovators a unique opportunity for mentorship, exposure and seed funding for sustainable nonprofit ventures. Our first annual Fast Pitch Finals (originally called “Fast Forward”) was held on October 29, 2014 at Woolfe Street Playhouse, where nonprofit participants competed for a $20,000 seed grant. In the second year, The American Theatre hosted the event, and the grand prize winner was Chucktown Squash Scholars. Throughout the program, the organizations received mentoring and training, helping them to hone their ideas, improve their concept and build relationships with advisors, donors and partners.
