Austin Fast Start: Creatives Pitch Event 2022

Monday, July 18, 2022 (5:30 PM - 7:30 PM) (CDT)


Austin Fast Start is a pitch competition with a purpose. Every quarter, we will hear from a new industry and award an unrestricted cash prize and other opportunities to turn these dreams into realities. This quarter's industry is Creatives. You'll get the opportunity to see and hear innovators present their ideas and vote for your favorite. 

Meet the Finalists

tourless is revolutionizing the way music is shared and discovered by creating a market place where musical artists can purchase "radio" airtime from local businesses (coffee shops, restaurants, etc.).
