HarborOne Bank Awards $15,000 to Winning Entrepreneurs in Small Business Pitch Contest

HarborOne Bank awarded two prizes totaling $15,000 to two small business entrepreneurs as part of their fourth annual Small Business “Pitch Contest,” hosted by HarborOne U.

On June 12, eight entrepreneurs were selected from a pool of 30 to present their business plan to three judges in competition for a $10,000 first place prize to help grow and develop their business. The runner-up received a $5,000 prize.

The event was held at HarborOne U, the bank’s community education center that offers free financial literacy and small business courses throughout the year at locations in Brockton, Mansfield and the greater Providence area. The small business pitch contest was designed to give area entrepreneurs a chance to present their business plans and ideas in a constructive, fun and friendly forum – and potentially win money to help them establish or expand their business. Each applicant had five minutes to present a business plan and growth strategy. Participants were judged on presentation, marketing and sales strategy and financials.

This year’s top prize of $10,000 prize went to Jennifer Beauregard of Attleboro, MA the founder and head of SanoBe Superfoods, which develops healthy foods incorporating all natural ingredients, minerals crucial for good health necessary for good nutrition – and great taste.

Runner up and a $5,000 prize went to brothers Jean Alexandre of Pawtucket, RI and Pierre Alexandre of Brockton, MA for Battlebeamz, a unique and memorable mobile laser tag experience using the coolest and most advanced technology available.
