If you've got a big idea for a business on the Southcoast, bring it to the Pitch Contest!

EforAll South Coast will be hosting a pitch contest open to All Ideas in Fall River on Wednesday, April 5th and in New Bedford on Thursday, April 20th.

The E for All Pitch Contest is "a golden opportunity to get a great start with your idea for a business or non-profit" that is often referred to as the local Shark Tank without the teeth.

Participants will pitch your idea to a panel of judges who will then award winners the following cash prizes for their big idea:
Grand Prize:   $1,000
2nd Place:      $750
3rd Place:       $500
Fan Favorite:  $500 (audience votes via text messaging!)
