What Is Fast Pitch?

SVP Fast Pitch is a business training and pitch competition for nonprofit and for-profit social innovators age 16 to 106.  Fast Pitch connects innovators with business, philanthropic, and nonprofit leaders who want to help them change the world.

Our fourth annual Fast Pitch Finals will be held on October 28, 2014 at McCaw Hall where participants can win a portion of $250k in grants and investments.  Throughout the Fast Pitch program participants receive mentoring and training, helping them to hone their ideas, improve their pitch and build relationships with advisors, donors, investors and partners.
