SVP Fast Pitch Seattle Applications Now Open

SVP Fast Pitch Seattle just opened applications for nonprofit as well as mission-driven for-profit leaders. This program is ideal for startups in need of professional coaching and established nonprofits who want help growing an innovative new program.

SVP Fast Pitch connects innovators who focus on societal challenges throughout Puget Sound with business and community leaders who help them accelerate their impact.

The SVP Fast Pitch competition includes five tracks: startup nonprofit, established nonprofit, for-profit, high school, and university. A total of 56 innovators are selected to participate. During the four-month SVP Fast Pitch program, they hone their ideas and improve their pitches via clinics and coaching from professionals. The competition culminates with the 7th Annual SVP Fast Pitch Final Showdown on October 24 with 14 finalists pitching on-stage at McCaw Hall for a chance to win cash grants and prizes (worth $500 to $10,0000+).

SVP Fast Pitch Seattle began in 2011. Since then, supporters have 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.

Applications for the 2017 competition are now open through June 20. There’s also a free SVP Fast Pitch Application Workshop on Tuesday, May 30, 5:30-7:00 PM at the Impact Hub Seattle.
