Social Venture Partners invites you to attend the 2014 Social Innovation Fast Pitch!

Social Venture Partners is seeking Los Angeles’ most innovative and high-impact nonprofit organizations to participate in the 2014 Social Innovation Fast Pitch. The Social Innovation Fast Pitch is a free two-month communication skills training program for nonprofits that are creating lasting social change in Greater Los Angeles. This year, it culminates in the Social Innovation Fast Pitch & Showcase on Wednesday, October 29th.  The program trains nonprofit leaders to powerfully communicate their story, and connects them with leaders in the business, philanthropic, and nonprofit communities who can help them achieve their goals.

Leaders from 20 organizations are selected to participate based on the degree to which their approaches to pressing issues give them a competitive advantage to significantly increase social impact.  Past participants have described the program as invaluable – resulting in greater confidence and effectiveness when presenting, increased exposure for their organization, important new relationships, and additional support from donors and volunteers. 

This year’s Fast Pitch will be held at the Skirball Cultural Center. Up to 10 finalists will make three-minute pitches to a panel of judges and an audience of approximately 600 philanthropic, business, civic, and nonprofit leaders,  competing to win awards totaling over $40,000.  Following the program, the showcase reception will be your chance to meet the nonprofit participants.

Past winners include New Earth, Young Invincibles, Streetcraft LA, First Place for Youth, Los Angeles Diaper Drive, Gumball Foundation, Get on the Bus, BTS Communications, Food Forward, South Central Scholars Foundation, Girls & Gangs, Everyone Deserves a Roof, and others.

SCG members will receive a special discounted ticket price of $50,by using the discount code SOCALGRANTMAKER.
