Patrons of Change

This was a podcast where my friend Lucas Parry and I explored topics including entrepreneurship, technology, philanthropy, social justice, our environment and other issues affecting our world and ways that we can make an impact. We retired the show after the pitch competition, but had a lot of fun doing it along the way!



It's been a long time since we've posted a new episode of the Patrons of Change podcast, and there is good reason for that.  We've got some very exciting announcements that we'll cover in today's episode regarding the future direction of both the podcast episodes and meetup groups. Today we are extremely proud to be officially announcing FastPitch!  This is THE PREMIERE event in Nashville to pitch your business idea for cash awards and an opportunity for investment.

This event takes place in 3 phases.

  1. PitchCamp - Febuary 6th
  2. OpenPitch - Febuary 27th & March 7th
