SVP Chicago Fast Pitch 2017

Our 2017 Fast Pitch showcase event was terrific – each of our eight presenters knocked their pitches out of the ballpark and there was a lot of positive buzz in the audience of 300+ guests at Uptake! What an inspiring, high energy night!

Thank you to our amazing judges and sponsors for your generous contribution of time and effort to the 2017 Fast Pitch competition. Without you, this program could not have been possible, as your support will enable your leaders to attract new board members, volunteers, and donors to their organizations. The impact that you’ve made on your leaders should not be underestimated and we’re grateful for your support.
