The 2011 Social Innovation Fast Pitch Competition organized by the Los Angeles Social Venture Partners is accepting applications until July 18.
It is open to LA's most innovative non-profits, who will compete for over $100,000 in grants.
Participating nonprofits receive a two-month mentoring program. One participant will become the next LASVP investee and benefit from multi-year cash grants and capacity-building support. The process culminates on October 25 with a "fast pitch" competition to be held at Annenberg Alchemy Peer to Pier Event: a day of innovative thinking, distinguished speakers and networking.
