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.

Calling All Social Impact Innovators

Applications for the 5th annual Fast Pitch are open! All applicants will receive feedback, and select applicants will receive coaching and consultation from local entrepreneurs and training in various business practices. Experts from all fields of nonprofit and for-profit will help your organization. Learn more and apply here!
