The finalist will be selected to compete for $15,000 in prizes on April 28th at the Riverside County finals. If you would like to pitch, please pre-register here and complete an application.

- There is no solicitation for funding
- Contestants cannot advertise services or products
A Fast Pitch presentation is a must have tool that every entrepreneur should know how to eloquently deliver.
