Albina Community Bank Co-Sponsors Pitch Black in Portland
Pitch Black, Portland’s annual event for black entrepreneurs looking to launch their small businesses ideas, took place this past week. Albina Community Bank was among the sponsors. The four winners, selected from a pool of ten speakers who had five minutes each to pitch their ideas to a live audience, were all women. The first-place winner pitched a company that makes videos of inexpensive, DIY science projects for parents and kids. Her goal is to encourage children of color to explore the STEM fields.
