Our 2018 Fast Pitch Journey
Every year, Social Venture Partners of Sacramento (SVP) hosts ‘Fast Pitch’, which is designed to help nonprofits tell their story in a strategically crafted, three-minute pitch. Back in November, KidsFirst and 19 other nonprofit semifinalists from the across the Sacramento region were selected to join SVP’s 2018 Fast Pitch cohort. Each team received more than $11,000 of in-kind support through coaching and video assistance, as well as a chance to pitch at the pinnacle of Fast Pitch, hosted at the Golden 1 Center.
After months of practice and hard work alongside his coaches, our Senior Program Manager Mike Mason was selected to fill one of 10 finalist spots to present at the event finale at the Golden 1 Center. Mike delivered an incredible pitch, compassionately highlighting our organization and our impact in the community. After the judges’ evaluation, KidsFirst was awarded second place, a cash prize and a trophy!
When asked about his Fast Pitch experience, Mike commented, “With all the good work being done, it can be tough for nonprofits to share our stories of service in the community, but SVP helped us hone that skill.
