Entrepreneurs offer Fast Pitches

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Fast Pitch program is a chance for regional business owners to get their hands on much-needed cash.

But it's not easy. Participants have to compete for the money and have a product worth supporting. Those lucky enough to make it to the final round are grateful for the chance.

"It gives us - the entrepreneur - the opportunity to pitch to people who have interest in building businesses in savannah. This is the best form of building our tax base back up in the community," said Don Ernsts of Kool Coatings.

The final competition, which is organized by Georgia Tech Savannah, Georgia Southern University and the Creative Coast, came down to three overall winners. Diana Keogh got top honors.
