If you are a STUDENT, FACULTY or LOCAL ENTREPRENEUR
with an innovative IDEA then FastPitch is for you!
This program is designed to identify promising local entrepreneurs
to help start new ventures or grow existing ones.
This concept allows for entrepreneurs to MAKE A 3-MINUTE PITCH
of their innovative venture and be assessed as to the viability of the
ventures by local community leaders, academics, and investors.
COACHING and FEEDBACK will be provided before, during, and after
to better prepare you, your idea, and your presentation of that idea.
The entrepreneurs are competing in three categories:
STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS, EARLY STAGE ENTREPRENEURS (have
developed a product/service but have not started to sell it), and
LOCAL ENTREPRENEURS (have started to sell their product/service).
PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED to the best pitches!
