RuralRise Quick Pitch Proposal
The RuralRise Summit Planning Committee invites you to submit a quick pitch proposal for the 2021 RuralRISE Virtual Leadership Academy and Summit. This virtual event will continue the tradition of quick pitch talks to provide an opportunity to learn about successful projects/partnerships.

What is a Quick Pitch talk?
It is a crisp, brief, 5-slide/video and 5-minute overview of a program or project that is scalable, repeatable and has been successful in developing funding, deploying broadband, developing partnerships, etc.
The Goal: We want to expose attendees to as many working rural programs, projects, resources, etc.
We want rural communities to learn from each other.
The RuralRISE Summit Planning Committee will review all proposals and select Quick Pitch speakers based on content, relevance, and balance.
How successful talks work: Get to the point! Keep it brief! Time it.
Our goal is to provide a synopsis, a Cliff-Notes version of your project.
We will select quick pitches for the summit as well as placement on the RuralRISE Website - we will also include links to your program, etc.

We will review and contact the selected quick pitches by August 29th.
