Small Business Owners Shine in LISC's 4th Annual Pitch Contest

We teamed up with The Black Economic Council of Massachusetts (BECMA) to host the 4th Annual Local Founder's Stage Pitch Contest during the Mass Black Expo on Saturday, November 2nd at the Boston Convention & Exhibit Center. Local Founders Stage was created in order to highlight the innovation that exists within communities of color and allow entrepreneurs the opportunity to showcase their business ideas, get feedback, and build relationships with judges and community stakeholders.

Thanks to the generous support of Citizens Bank, LISC was able to offer a total of $20,000 in prizes to pitch winners. LISC wants to thank all the participants and give a special congratulations to the 4 prize winners below:
