The Social Venture Partners Fast Pitch is a free, two-month training and mentoring program for innovative non-profits that are effecting social change in Calgary. It culminates with the Fast Pitch competition on April 16th, 2015!
Twenty-two non-profit leaders were selected to participate based on their innovative approaches to creating social change and their potential for significant positive community impact. They received training and mentoring over the course of two months from 50 volunteer business professionals on how to succinctly and powerfully "tell their story".
The program culminates in a "Fast Pitch" competition – a high energy, fast moving, quick fire presentation event where eleven finalists shared the mission, vision, promise and model of their organization with the audience and judges.
Fast Pitch finalists have 3 minutes to present their ideas for social impact and vie for grants and prizes.
