The  Fast  Pitch Competition by the Tech Coast Angels

Our Fast Pitch Competitions are "the" place for Southern California entrepreneurs to present their ideas to investors.

Each competition consists of 8-12 entrepreneurs giving fast pitches to a panel of investors and other members of Southern California's entrepreneurial community. Pitches are judged on the quality of the CEO’s presentation and the company’s investment potential.

Over the years, Tech Coast Angels and several venture capital firms have funded many companies that have been Fast Pitch participants. Since its inception in 1997, Tech Coast Angels has provided more than $104 million to more than 160 companies, and attracted more than $1 billion from co-investors.

Fast Pitch events include plenty of networking time – Tech Coast Angels members, other angel investors, venture capitalists, and interested parties can meet and mingle over delicious food and beverages. Several hundred people attend each competition.

Fast Pitch is a “must attend” event for entrepreneurs looking to jump-start their dreams and for investors who want to hear about the latest innovations in Southern California.
