GA’s Next Big Startups will be at FastPitch

by Klaire Wesolowski

FastPitch, organized by The Creative Coast in Savannah, identifies promising local entrepreneurs and helps them start new ventures or grow existing ones.

How it works:

Entrepreneurs make a 3-minute pitch of their innovative venture with coaching and feedback provided before, during, and after to better prepare applicants, their ideas, and their presentations. Judges will assess the viability of each venture and the most promising ideas are further encouraged and supported. Some ventures will even receive funding from interested investors.

This year, entrepreneurs will be competing in three categories:

  • Student Entrepreneurs
  • Service-Based Entrepreneurs
  • Product-Based Entrepreneurs

Applications are closed, but everyone is invited to join on March 5 to cheer on competitors and experience ideas coming to life. Just $10 gets you a full day of pitching, coffee and lunch.

Paladin: A pay by the hour special-use aircraft aviation service startup targeting the US military customer to relieve the recurring services required

Plexr: Reaction Sharing: “Snapchat on Steroids;” this fun mobile app available on iOS records spontaneous reactions of friends when users send them content

The Bicycle Wrap Skirt: Designed to blend in and standout at the same time, while allowing women to wear skirts while riding in bikes without worrying about catching in tires, rubbing against a greasy chain, or blowing up in the wind
