Every year since 2013, Women Founders Network has hosted a unique event for female founders to showcase their business concept in front of hundreds of fellow entrepreneurs, influential industry professionals, expert pitching coaches, angel investors and venture capitalists looking to partner with a new promising startup.
The Fast Pitch Competition offers more than a rare opportunity to take your hard work to the next level with substantial funding---you will also get a chance to hone your entrepreneurial tool kit, polish your pitch deck, sharpen your presentation skills and build an invaluable business network that will support your goals for years to come.
Being a female entrepreneur can be tough, and many start-up founders find themselves at a plateau at some point.
As a contestant in the WFN Fast Pitch, you will have ample time to prepare yourself and bulletproof your concept to stand out among the competition. We provide finalists with a financial mentor to organize your finances and help you construct a robust business plan, as well as one-on-one pitch coaching so you can present an enticing deck that lands you the connections and money you need to scale your company.

Personal financial mentor to get your financials in order, so you can strengthen your deck and sway investors with a clear, promising plan for the future

Connection with Angel Investors and Venture Capital Funds focused on female founders, for a rare opportunity to deliver your pitch to investors passionate about seeing more driven businesswomen like you succeed
Cash Investment Potential from investors that attend the Fast Pitch and a chance to compete for over $25,000 in cash prizes and $50,000 in professional services
Ongoing Support Network of successful businesswomen committed to building the female entrepreneur ecosystem, so you can keep evolving and thriving in an empowering environment that offers continued education, opportunities and inspiration.
