SVP Arizona’s Social Innovation Fast Pitch is a free two-month communication skills training program and competition for innovative nonprofits that are effecting social change in the Greater Phoenix area. The Social Innovation Fast Pitch culminates in an event and showcase on March 28, 2017 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
Social Venture Partners Arizona (SVPAZ) Fast Pitch is a truly unique community event that helps support Valley nonprofits that are creating real and lasting impact in Maricopa County. The program trains nonprofit leaders and students to powerfully communicate their story, and connects them with leaders in the business, philanthropic, and nonprofit communities who can help them achieve their goals.
These individuals are selected to participate based on their innovative approaches to creating social change and their potential for significant positive community impact. They receive training and mentoring over the course of two months from volunteer business professionals on how to succinctly and powerfully “tell their story”.
The program culminates in a “Fast Pitch” competition – a high energy, rapid-fire presentation event during which ten finalists share the mission, vision and impact of their organizations with the audience and judges – in just three minutes. Arizona State University students will compete for $2,000 and the opportunity to pitch their idea/project/organization to an audience of over 500.
