The Quick Pitch Competition is one of the most recognized angel investor events in the nation showcasing talented entrepreneurs who are given 2 minutes each to pitch their business to an expert panel of judges, and a large audience of investors, business executives and community leaders who select the winners. The judges are given 3 minutes each to provide feedback on the pitches, which in turn helps influence the audience in their voting decision. Our 10 company finalists will receive invaluable coaching, and the top 3 winners will be awarded a combined amount of $50,000 in cash, plus additional business services from some of our generous sponsors.

This year’s Quick Pitch will be hosted by Tech Coast Angels-San Diego and San Diego Venture Group, with combined efforts of making it the best competition in San Diego. Last year’s competition winner went on to raised $2 Million in angel funding lead by the Tech Coast Angels. This program is designed to be fast-paced to keep the audience engaged, educated, and entertained.
