What Is Fast Pitch?

SVP Fast Pitch is a business pitch competition that supports nonprofits and social enterprises addressing critical needs and making a positive impact in the Puget Sound region and beyond. Since 2011, SVP Fast Pitch has connected changemakers with over $2 million in grants, investments, and prizes as well as thousands of hours of coaching from local professionals. The competition is for high school and college students, established nonprofits, early-stage nonprofits, and for-profit enterprises.

SVP Fast Pitch 2016

The SVP Fast Pitch 2016 edition began in June with the opening of the applications. Over 170 students, nonprofits, and for-profit enterprises applied to be a part of the program.

57 Innovators from the Students, Nonprofits, and For-Profit track were selected as the Quarterfinalists and made their presentations in the week of September 12.

28 Innovators were selected as Semifinalists.!

The Semifinals were held on October 4 and 14 Innovators will present on stage at McCaw Hall at the Final Showdown.
