About this event

Join us and other like-minded investors, angel groups, funds and other community builders that are aligned with the investment thesis of investing in scalable impact companies led by women, notably women of color.

The Women's Fast Pitch competition series returns for another nationwide tour this summer! Each week, up to five female founders from a different United States region will be chosen to pitch in front of investors and members of the startup community.

The winner from each region will advance to the national WFP Finals competition that will take place during Women’s Venture Summit from September 16-17, 2022. One winner will take home a $10,000 investment and up to $30,000 business in in-kind services.

Midwest region includes the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin.

This and all #WFP2022 events are free and open to the public. RSVP now to be a part of the audience that cheers on these incredible founders!
