FastPitch 2012 coaching

The FastPitch 2012 competition is rapidly approaching and on March 15th from 5:00pm competitors received coaching on their three minutes elevator pitches and one-page executive summaries.  The coaching session was held in the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.  36 entrepreneurs attended coaching sessions, tried out their pitch on coaches and received 20 minutes of advice and recommendations on how to improve their efforts for the event on the 29th March.

All of the sessions went smoothly and contestants felt that they were better prepared and ready to meet prospective investors.  Louise Hodges of Greenbug LLC explained, “This is the second year I have entered the FastPitch competition and I feel honored to make it through twice.  The coaching session, as always was invaluable and has helped me prepare my pitch for the investors and judges on March 29th”.  Thank you to all the coaches in 2012: Orjan Isacson (ATDC); Luke Pittaway (Georgia Southern); Jim Williams (Georgia Southern Entrepreneurial Fellow); Ray Wenig (Ariel South East Angel Partners); Lynn Vos (SBDC); Marjorie Young (SCORE); Ron Medinger (Georgia Southern Entrepreneurial Fellow); Tamara Friedrich (Savannah State); Connie Edwards (SBDC); and, Kate Strain (Belzer PC).

The contestants are now ready and the FastPitch 2012 competition awaits.
