FastPitch Returns!

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, including investors.

The first FastPitch event took place in 2012. FastPitch was designed for students, early-stage companies, and established businesses who want to launch or expand their business.

All pitch contestants receive mentorship during an intensive 12-week Idea Accelerator Bootcamp or a similar startup coaching program. The Idea Accelerator Bootcamp, which is a program powered by the Advanced Technology Development Center in partnership with The Creative Coast, features instruction from experienced business mentors who help the pitch participants refine their idea based on customer discovery, understand their business model and financials, practice their pitch, and craft a slide deck.
