FastPitch identifies promising local entrepreneurs helping them start new ventures or grow existing ones.
Want to win prize money and valuable consultant time?
Want to get feedback on your great idea?
Want to meet potential investors?
If you are a STUDENT, FACULTY, or LOCAL ENTREPRENEUR with an innovative IDEA then FastPitch is for you!
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 will be provided before, during, and after to better prepare you, your idea, and your presentation of that idea.
The entrepreneurs are competing in three categories:
STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS, EARLY STAGE ENTREPRENEURS (have developed a product/service but have not started to sell it), and LOCAL/EXISTING ENTREPRENEURS (have started to sell their product/service).
PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED to the best pitches! Interested? APPLY HERE!
