SVP Fast Pitch

What Is SVP Fast Pitch?

SVP Fast Pitch highlights and propels social innovation in the Puget Sound region and beyond. Innovators tackling societal challenges are paired with business and community leaders who help accelerate their impact. Each year, innovators compete in one of five tracks: startup nonprofit, established nonprofit, for-profit, high school and university.

Throughout the four-month SVP Fast Pitch program, innovators hone their ideas and improve their pitches via clinics and coaching from professionals. In the past 6 years, SVP Fast Pitch provided 15,000+ hours of coaching and $1M+ in grants and pro-bono services to 300+ social impact organizations tackling poverty, homelessness, inequity in education, prisoner recidivism, climate change, and other pressing issues in our community and world.

The competition culminates at our annual SVP Fast Pitch Final Showdown with 14 finalists pitching on-stage at McCaw Hall. Stay tuned for ticket information to attend the 2018 event.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be inspired, make connections and commit to social impact in our community. Every ticket purchased is an act of philanthropy.
