The Thursday, November 8th PioPitch, which starts at 4:00 p.m. in the Timothy O. Cooper Auditorium, will focus on social entrepreneurship and feature Erica Marks, and Jeff Totten and Kirk McCall.
Marks is the director of the Yew Mountain Center, a non-profit educational organization providing programs that explore Appalachian ecology, culture and arts while promoting community and personal wellness. At PioPitch, Marks will seek input on ways to bring new energy and ideas to her area and ask about potential partners and service-learning programs for the organization.
Totten and McCall represent the Belpre Area Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee. At PioPitch, the two will seek feedback on how to make the city even greater than it already is, and are especially interested in the potential of Belpre’s riverfront area, potential branding for the city, and ways Belpre can become a destination for new residents and visitors.
