5 Minute Fast Pitch
MUST made it to the finals of Social Venture Partner’s (SVP) prestigious Fast Pitch competition. Rick presented his 5 minute pitch to an audience of 1,000 people. MUST took home three awards, which was the first time that has happened in the history of the contest.
Winner: Audience Choice Award
– The audience voted live.
Winner: Donor Impact Award
– The SVP donors decided this important award.
Winner: 2nd in our division
– We are told it was a very close call but the ten judges put us 2nd.
MUST also received five angel checks from audience members. In total MUST took home $21,000. Just as important is the credibility the awards give as we apply for grants and approach new donors. It feels rewarding to work hard for something and see the fruit of our labor. Plus we get some over-sized checks. How fun is that?
