Linda Hale, Canton Innovation District Community Manager visited the Gary Rivers Show Friday morning to talk about their new event.

The pitch contest is Wednesday, April 24th at Deli Ohio.  Ten Stark county entrepreneurs are pitching their business ideas to a live audience, and a panel of judges, for a chance to win up to $1000. The best part? All participants will walk away with at least $250!
