Apply to become an SVP Fast Pitch Innovator

Do you have an innovative plan for changing the world? Are you a startup nonprofit or have a new program in an established nonprofit? Are you a for-profit startup, a university or high school student? If you answered yes to any of these, you should consider applying to SVP Fast Pitch!

Applicants accepted into the program are called “innovators.” They are assigned two coaches who help them perfect their organization’s plan and pitch in preparation for a series of competitive presentations culminating in the SVP Fast Pitch Final Showdown at McCaw Hall.

Innovators who make it to the semifinals will have the opportunity to participant in the Innovator Showcase at the Final Showdown and the 14 finalists will pitch on-stage in front of 1,000 social innovation supporters for a chance to win cash grants and prizes (worth $500 to $10,0000+).

Other innovator benefits include comradeship and inspiration from fellow innovators, a free ticket to the Final Showdown, media coverage, and connections to potential donors, investors and community leaders.

How to Apply

Read the eligibility guidelines and feel free to register for our Application Workshop on Tuesday, May 30, 5:30-7:00 PM at the Impact Hub Seattle.
