What Is Fast Pitch?

SVP Fast Pitch is a business pitch competition for innovative nonprofit and for-profit social impact entrepreneurs – organizations that are solving today’s important social problems and making a positive impact in the Greater Puget Sound area. In its first four years, SVP Fast Pitch has connected social impact entrepreneurs with over $1.2 million in investments and grants. Thanks to our generous sponsors we are raising the 2015 award pool to $375,000 – $125,000 in grants and $250,000 in investments. See the full list of 2015 sponsors here.

What’s happening now

Applications for the 5th annual SVP Fast Pitch have closed and the finalists are busy meeting with their coaches to prepare for their pitches for the next round of competition. Check out this video about why coaches volunteer their time to help Innovators.
