BridgeCare took home 1st Place this year in the For-Profit Impact Company category of the 7th annual SVP Fast Pitch competition held in Seattle. We faced very worthy and impressive competition from the other Fast Pitch Finalists, selected in early October to compete in the grand finale. The level of excellence in pitches across every category was unparalleled thanks to the mentorship and coaching from seasoned SVP volunteers. Our hats off to everyone that competed and, more importantly, that work hard to have a positive impact on our world every day!

Social Ventures Partners is a philanthropic organization that strives to "help build thriving, sustainable and just communities for all". SVP Fast Pitch is just one of their many initiatives to find and promote startups and established organizations, like BridgeCare, and "take their vital work – for kids, for families, for the environment – to the next level".

We're extremely proud to have been selected for the honor, but we also want to call attention to the other great finalists that competed with us. They are all doing great work, and we can't wait to see what comes next for these dynamic organizations. Here's a run down of everyone that shared the stage with us.
