FastPitch identifies promising local entrepreneurs helping them start new ventures or grow existing ones.
This concept allows for entrepreneurs to MAKE A 3-MINUTE PITCH of their innovative venture and be assessed as to the viability of the ventures by local community leaders, academics, and investors. COACHING and FEEDBACK is provided before, during, and after to better prepare you, your idea, and your presentation of that idea.
This year, the entrepreneurs are competing in three categories:
- STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS
- SERVICE-BASED ENTREPRENEURS
- PRODUCT-BASED ENTREPRENEURS
PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED to the best pitches! Applications have now closed, but anyone can join us MARCH 5th to cheer on the competitors! For just $10, you get a full day of pitching, coffee and lunch included! TICKETS HERE!
