Looking for an inspirational night out, or just ready to connect with some awesome humans?!

Join us for a moving evening, filled with connection and celebration at the SVP Fast Pitch Final Showdown as social entrepreneurs pitch their mission, vision and promise of innovation and change in our community.

The Final Showdown is the culminating event of SVP Fast Pitch Seattle, a communications and pitch competition giving a voice to Puget Sound area nonprofits and social enterprise organizations. Through a free three-month intensive program, organizations learn to hone their storytelling skills, connect with peer organizations and gain dedicated mentorship.

Witness creativity, commitment and compassion come together as each of our 11 finalists tell their story in a 5 minute pitch. Vote for your favorites and share in the excitement as winners receive grants and prizes totaling over $100,000.

Following the stage program you are invited to meet all 21 participating organizations at our innovator expo and reception where you’ll enjoy amazing food, drinks and community connections. You can network, find ways to engage and celebrate the efforts of these stellar organizations to create positive social change.

Your ticket purchase supports social innovation and helps fuel the grant pool – let’s fill the house!

Sounds great, give me the deets!
