Judges and audience members vote for their favorite nonprofit! Come VOTE for 1N5! All are invited and welcome to come vote for and cheer on 1N5 at the Duke Energy Convention Center on March 14, from 5:30-9:30PM. 


Social Venture Partners Cincinnati presents Fast Pitch 2019 and it is bigger and better than ever.  This is good fun for good causes.  As one of last year’s attendees summed it up, “I can’t think of a better way to enjoy an evening with friends and support innovative nonprofits at the same time. We really enjoyed learning about the great work happening in our city.”

Come network with philanthropists, community leaders, and entrepreneurs. Every ticket purchased is an act of philanthropy and an investment in social innovation. You don’t want to miss it!

In addition to the competition, Fast Pitch will feature a cash bar and small bites for everyone attending.


Using a technique borrowed from the venture capital and startup communities, Fast Pitch uses a Shark Tank pitch style to showcase and accelerate nonprofits making a difference in our city. We bring together 12 worthy nonprofits to make three-minute presentations about  the work they do, all under the banner of “Innovation that Matters.”  Prize money totaling over $30,000 will be awarded to winners across several categories.
