‘Pitch your idea’ event spotlights local entrepreneurs

CENTRAL FALLS – Six local Latino entrepreneurs recently got the chance to pitch their new business ideas for cash prizes during a “pitch your idea” event similar to the popular television show “Shark Tank” but held in Spanish.

EforAll (or EparaTodos), a national non-profit organization dedicated to bringing entrepreneurship opportunities to economically disadvantaged neighborhoods, hosted the event at the Rhode Island College Workforce Development Hub on October 4.

The organization helps entrepreneurs successfully start their businesses by providing them mentorship and educational resources. EforAll currently supports a large network of 1,400 alumni businesses, with 70 percent of them remaining active for three years.
