Eagle FastPitch Competition
Applications are now open for the Eagle FastPitch competition. 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 re-launched the local event last fall 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. The deadline to apply is Oct. 31. Eagle FastPitch will take place on Nov. 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.
We need your help to make this event a success so we can continue to keep it FREE to participants as we grow. Sponsorships help us offset costs associated with event set-up, food and prizes. We are also looking for partners who are willing to mentor our startups by volunteering consulting hours.
If you are available and interested in getting involved in this amazing event for students, please contact Suzanne Hallman at email@example.com or 912-478-5586.
