PITTSFIELD — Entrepreneurship for All Berkshire County is coordinating a half-day Business Resource Expo on Tuesday, Aug. 9 at the Stationery Factory in Dalton.

A collaborative effort of EforAll, 1Berkshire, Pittsfield Economic Revitalization Corp., and the Berkshire Regional Planning Council, this event will feature booths from more than 25 organizations that support small business, panel discussions, and plenty of opportunities for networking.

Business owners and managers will be able to connect with organizations and programs that have resources to help them, whether with technical assistance, funding or grant programs, marketing, or other advice or support. The program will be valuable for existing businesses, would-be entrepreneurs, and solo service providers and consultants.

Participants will be able to access experts through a series of panel discussions led by regional experts, including “Which Organization Can Help Me with What?” moderated by Ben Lamb of 1Berkshire; “Fueling Your Business: Where’s the Money?” moderated by Raymond Lanza-Weil of Common Capital; and “How Can I Find More Customers…What Marketing Works?” moderated by Noah Cook-Dubin of Kanoa Consulting.

The event will be inside at the Stationery Factory on Flansburg Avenue in Dalton. Doors open at 8:30 a.m., and the event will conclude by 1 p.m. A networking area will be open throughout the event for one-on-one conversations and meetings. Admission is free of charge, but pre-registration is required at bcbizexpo.com.

PITTSFIELD — Entrepreneurship for All (EforAll) Berkshire County is holding an All Ideas Pitch Contest on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at Crissey Farm, 426 Stockbridge Road, Great Barrington, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The venue requires proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event.

EforAll held two successful in-person pitch contests at Berkshire Museum in Pittsfield in October 2019 and at the Green in North Adams in February 2020, attracting more than 100 community members and dozens of participants for each event. Three virtual pitch contests were also held during the pandemic.

Described as “Shark Tank without the teeth,” EforAll’s free, family-friendly event features networking, a business showcase, a light dinner, and then pitches from eight contestants.

Each participant is given two and a half minutes to pitch a business or nonprofit idea to a panel of judges and the audience. At the end, EforAll gives away seed money to help launch these ideas. The first-place finisher wins $1,000, second place wins $750, third place wins $500, and the audience favorite wins $500.

Pre-registration is required at bit.ly/Attend_PitchContest.

Business startups (whether or not they participate in the Pitch Contest) are encouraged to apply for Berkshire County’s next Accelerator in the spring of 2022. This free, 12-week, intensive training program is taught by community mentors and volunteers who lend their expertise and experience to these budding entrepreneurs.
