Winner of first EforAll Pitch Contest, Kaitlyn Pierce
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) Berkshire County is holding an "All Ideas Pitch Contest" on Wednesday, Nov. 10, 2021. 
 
The program will be held at Crissey Farm. 426 Stockbridge Road in Great Barrington from 5:30-8pm.   
 
The venue requires proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within 72 hours of the event.
 
EforAll held two in-person Pitch Contests at the Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield in October 2019 and at The Green in North Adams in February 2020, attracting over 100 community members for each event and dozens of participants.  (3 virtual Pitch Contests were also held during Covid.)
 
EforAll's family-friendly, free event features networking, a business showcase, a light dinner and then pitches from 8 contestants. 
 
Each participant is given 2.5 minutes to pitch a business or non-profit idea to a panel of judges and the audience. At the end of it, EforAll gives away seed money to help launch these ideas. The first place finisher wins $1,000; second place $750; third place $500; and audience favorite $500.

Business startups (whether or not they participate in the Pitch Contest) are encouraged to apply for Berkshire County's next Accelerator in Spring 2022. This free 12-week intensive training program is taught by community mentors and volunteers who lend their expertise and experience to these budding entrepreneurs.
