Our Fast Pitch Competitions are "the" place for Southern California entrepreneurs to present their ideas to investors.
Each competition consists of 12 entrepreneurs giving 90 second pitches to a panel of investors and other members of Southern California's entrepreneurial community. Each pitch is judged for the quality of the presentation and its investment potential.
Since the first competition eight years ago, the Tech Coast Angels and several venture capital firms have funded many companies that pitched.
The events include plenty of networking time for idea generators, Tech Coast Angels members, angel investors, venture capitalists, and other interested parties to meet over delicious food and beverages. Several hundred people attend each competition.
These are "must attend" events for entrepreneurs looking to jump-start their entrepreneurial dreams and for investors seeking to hear about the latest in innovation in Southern California.
