Voting is underway for this 2021 Entrepreneur Pitch. The Entrepreneur Pitch is your opportunity to choose which locally owned businesses are awarded grant money generously provided by EQT.

This year, nine entrepreneurs have worked with us to create video presentations that you can watch by clicking the button below. Once you have watched the videos, you can vote for the project you feel is most deserving. Voting will be open until October 20th.
Greeting to All! I hope that everyone has had the opportunity to enjoy the unusually good weather we’ve been having. It won’t last much longer so get out and take advantage while you can.

We’ve had a flurry of activities in both counties to celebrate the season. The Autumn Fest, in New Martinsville, was a huge success! A number of the vendors sold out of their goods; just what we love to hear! Congratulations and job well done to everyone who put the Autumn Fest together. If you received a call or text that you’ve won a prize at the festival, we have them at the Chamber office for pick-up.
On Saturday, put a stop at S&S Jewelry on your calendar for their Estate Jewelry Show. The show will include jewels from the private collections of some of America’s best-known celebrities. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our area that you won’t want to miss!
This Sunday, be sure to visit Hundred’s Fall Festival where they’re providing live music, food, craft vendors, raffles, and various contests. Festivities are from noon to 6:30 pm. 
I hope that everyone has had the opportunity to watch the Entrepreneur Pitch videos and has taken the time to vote. Each contestant has put a lot of effort into developing and presenting their businesses and would really appreciate your input and your vote! Voting is now open and will continue until October 20, 2021. Please keep in mind that each business, whether existing or proposed offers growth potential to our community and an increase in our economic base. We need more thriving small businesses, so I urge each of you to take a moment to preview the videos and vote for your favorite.
