Savannah, GA (May 2, 2022) – FastPitch 2022 is set to take place on Wednesday, May 4th, at Service Brewing (574 Indian Street in Savannah) from 4pm to 6pm. The business pitch competition, which is run by The Creative Coast, provides area businesses with the opportunity to pitch their endeavors to a live audience for the chance to win a cash prize. Audience members will vote to determine which companies win one of three cash prizes.
All of the contestants have participated in intensive mentorship programs and spent weeks refining their idea, understanding their business model and financials, learning to successfully articulate their pitch and executive summary, and crafting a slide deck. This year’s event will feature graduates from The Creative Coast’s Idea Accelerator Bootcamp as well as students that participated in startup pitch events at the Savannah College of Art and Design and Savannah State University. Ten companies will be competing for the chance to win:
Jordan Sampson for Sampson Digital Media Management & Consultation
