Fast Pitch is the original nonprofit pitch competition in Greater Cincinnati. We have trained more than 120 nonprofits in effective storytelling techniques and have showcased more than 70 nonprofits at our annual event. Using a technique borrowed from the venture capital and start-up communities, Fast Pitch is an eight week nonprofit training program in storytelling. Nonprofits are matched with individual Social Venture Partners to practice, refine and hone their messages. Finalists deliver their resulting 3-minute pitch for a chance to win cash and consulting awards.

Get ready for FAST PITCH 2020 – The Virtual Edition!  Social Venture Partners Cincinnati is excited to present our first-ever, reimagined, online Fast Pitch event.

Join us online anytime from September 29 at 7:00 PM to October 1 at 11:59 PM to witness all the excitement as our Finalists take the stage to present their pitches!  Your ticket purchase admits you into the event and allows you to vote.  This year, all proceeds from ticket sales will go directly towards cash prizes for all Finalists!
