A big thank you to the nearly 100 neighbors that came out to listen to short pitches, try samples, and provide valuable feedback to our entrepreneurs in Clarkston, East Lake and Southside Atlanta.      

We loop forward to second half of the program where the focus will be on business plans, financials, and final pitches.
