    HOLYOKE - SPARK EforAll Holyoke continues to support entrepreneurs and idea sharing with two Pitch Contests planned for this spring.   Both Pitch Contests are a golden opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to share, receive feedback, and possibly win prize money for a business or non-profit idea.  
    The first event is a Pitch Contest for Food and Drink-themed ideas, hosted on Wednesday April 10 at 6pm at the HCC Culinary Arts School (164 Race Street in Holyoke).  The deadline to apply is Thursday March 28 at 11:59am.
    The second event is an All Ideas Pitch Contest, and will be held on Wednesday April 24 at 6pm in the community room of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (485 Appleton Street in Holyoke). The deadline to apply for the All Ideas Pitch Contest is Thursday, April 11 at 11:59am.
    Entrepreneurs can apply for either Pitch Contest at eforall.org/ma/holyoke.
    Prizes for the winners, who will be chosen by a panel of judges, are $1,000 for the Grand Prize winner, $750 for Second Place, $500 for Third Place, $500 for the Fan Favorite (audience vote).
    Audience members will have as much fun as the entrepreneurs at the EforAll pitch contest. There are two networking opportunities – before and after the contest – and up to fifteen entrepreneurs will be talking about their ideas, looking for feedback and advice! It’s a great chance to catch the enthusiasm and energy of passionate people looking to create a business or non-profit.
    SPARK EforAll Holyoke is actively seeking entrepreneurs, specialists, mentors and sponsors. For more information about SPARK EforAll Holyoke reach out to Tessa Murphy-Romboletti, Executive Director at tessa@eforall.org or visit eforall.org/ma/holyoke.
    About Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) – EforAll believes that the best way to revitalize mid-sized U.S. cities that have fallen into decline, and suffer related high rates of poverty and unemployment, is to fuel the dreams and ambitions of entrepreneurs who live in and near these cities. We believe that they understand their city and its problems better than anyone else and have ideas and solutions with the potential to make their city prosper once again while they create their own pathway out of poverty. www.eforall.org
