Eagle FastPitch making comeback
BIG is happy to announce that it will bring the Eagle FastPitch competition back to Georgia Southern University this fall. Finalists in Eagle FastPitch will compete to see who can deliver the best elevator pitch to judges in just three minutes. The competition provides a unique opportunity for enterprising students to hone their selling skills.
Eagle FastPitch originally launched in November 2009 and expanded over the years with the addition of new sponsors and collaborators to become a regional FastPitch competition held in Savannah each spring. BIG is re-launching the local event to showcase the entrepreneurial talent of students across Georgia Southern’s campus. Students who participate and are interested in launching a new business or gaining venture capital will have a leg up on the regional competition.
Eagle FastPitch is FREE and open to all Georgia Southern students. Twelve finalists will be chosen and will work with mentors and coaches who will help them prepare in the two weeks leading up to the competition. Eagle FastPitch will take place on November 17 at 3 p.m. in the Whitaker Black Box Theater on West Main St. in Downtown Statesboro. Finalists will deliver a three-minute pitch of their innovative enterprise to a panel of local community leaders, investors, and academic professionals. Pitches will be judged based on the idea, impact, implementation, presentation, structure and delivery of the pitch. Prize packages are still being determined.
