About Pitch for Good:
The EC’s Pitch for Good monthly event series sets the stage for entrepreneurs who are focused on finding solutions that benefit our local community and the world. Entrepreneurs across the state (and current EC participants) apply to pitch their businesses for the chance to be awarded financial grants. The program started with “Pitch for Good: Pandemic Edition” in May 2020 to shine a light on entrepreneurs pivoting their business to help fight COVID-19. Now, each month, the Pitch for Good event focuses on underserved communities, headlining industries or celebrating the entrepreneurs of our hometown.
