FastPitch identifies promising entrepreneurs starting new ventures or growing existing ones and gives them the opportunity to pitch their innovative endeavors in front of a live audience.
The first FastPitch event took place in 2012 and is Savannah’s first startup pitch competition. The annual business pitch event is hosted by The Creative Coast and made possible by generous sponsors and partners. Contestants pitch to win money for their startups from a $10k prize pool. This year’s prize pool sponsor is the Savannah Economic Development Authority.
FastPitch was designed for students, early-stage companies, and established businesses who want to launch or expand their businesses. Whether you’re only in the concept phase, re-inventing your business model, or expanding on your business with a new idea, you’re a fit!
Finalists will have 5 minutes each to present their endeavors to the audience for the chance to win prize money. All finalists will need to have a Google Slide deck prepared ahead of the event.
