    SVP Cincinnati’s Fast Pitch is back bigger and better than ever. This is good fun for good causes. As one of last year’s attendees summed it up, “I can’t think of a better way to enjoy an evening with friends and support innovative nonprofits at the same time. We really took pleasure in seeing the great work happening in our city.”

    We’re bringing together 10 worthy nonprofits to make three-minute presentations about the work they do, all under the banner of “Innovation that Matters.” Prize money totaling over $30,000 will be given to winners across several categories.

    2018’s Finalists will be announced shortly.

    In addition to the competition, Fast Pitch will feature cash bar, small bites, and an after-party for everyone attending.

    Parking options are abundant, including surface lots and garages surrounding the Convention Center on Fifth and Sixth Streets between Elm and Central.
