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, 56 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 huge challenges.
And none of this would be possible without our incredible volunteers! There are many ways to get involved with Fast Pitch, so please check out our current opportunities!
