Austin Fast Start is a pitch competition with a purpose. Over the next year, we will focus on one strategic priority per quarter and will support the best ideas within four verticals: Consumer Packaged Goods, Ed Tech, Fashion, and Bio/Med Tech. Every quarter, we will hear from a new industry and award an unrestricted cash prize and other opportunities to turn these dreams into realities. Applicants do not need to have a business launched yet, and do not need to be a member of any partner organizations to apply. The application process is open to anyone with an idea! The first Austin Fast Start pitch event is Thursday, October 26 at 6:00pm.
