Social Venture Partners Tampa Bay Bay is part of a global collective of successful professionals who leverage their time, expertise, and resources to develop strong nonprofits in their communities. Partners invest their time and talent in innovative nonprofits while actively nurturing their investments with personal guidance and resources.
Established in 2017, Social Venture Partners Fast Pitch is a celebration of our community, and the amazing work nonprofits do day in and day out. Thanks to the support of Community Foundation Tampa Bay, Fast Pitch is entering its 6th year.
Throughout the 16-week program, participating organizations get lessons on operations, marketing, finance, law, and the art of storytelling. Each nonprofit works with a partner or mentor to develop a 3-minute pitch detailing the mission of their organization’s mission and the social enterprise that helps fund their programs. At the annual pitch night competition, Fast Pitch participants light up the audience with their passion and dedication to their causes. Each year a select group of nonprofit organizations are chosen from a competitive application pool. Selection criteria are based on a process that utilizes the targeted focus areas of the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay’s competitive grant cycle. Organizations must demonstrate the degree to which their approaches to pressing issues give them a competitive advantage to increase social impact significantly. Winning organizations are awarded unrestricted grant funding.
The 2022 SVP Tampa Bay Fast Pitch Participants are:

The Fast Pitch competition is slated for November 2022 and will be open to the public. Tickets and additional information will be available in the coming weeks.
