A pitch contest asks what the ‘blue economy’ means at the grassroots

The free event was packed. Maybe the all-you-can-eat raw bar — a reflection of the growth of at least part of the Cape’s blue economy — helped. It provided littlenecks from Orleans and oysters from Dennis for people to slurp while seven entrepreneurs made their two-and-a-half-minute pitches.

EforAll Executive Director Christin Marshall said she decided on the theme for this year’s pitch contest after reading the Camoin report, a community development plan submitted to the town in 2019 that identified investing in Provincetown’s blue economy as a top goal. She was curious to see how the local Cape community would approach the topic.
