Entrepreneurs share business models during ‘Shark Tank’-inspired EforAll event in Longmont

Growing up in Mexico City, Francis Nieve Blanca used to walk the streets hearing the calls from local vendors, peddling their freshly cooked food.

Blanca, the owner of catering company Volcán Azul, echoed their shouts Thursday night at the Longmont Public Library, yelling “Tortas, tostadas!” The cry, as well as many freshly cooked samples, were part of Blanca’s pitch during the third EforAll Turning Dreams into Business event.

EforAll gave 11 local business owners the chance to share their ideas with the community and a panel of judges, in a model reminiscent of the popular TV show “Shark Tank,” where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to wealthy investors.
