contest to get the word out about her business but in the end, got a lot more than that out of the event. “It was cool to connect with so many people there. While there were some people from the tritown area there, I met people from all over including Plymouth, Tiverton, and Little Compton, and it helped me get the word out to many different people,” said Angeley, who offers art classes and walkin art time for students Tuesdays and Saturdays 10-2 p.m. and after school, allowing students to work at their own pace. “It was also nice that they offered an incentive to win a nice prize. It was nice to network with so many people (150 were at the event) but it was also great to secure something tangible to help the business.” In her pitch, Angeley said that due to her business being so new and budget tight, she was basically performing her marketing on her personal iPad and hoped to one day secure a new computer that would make her business marketing much more efficient. The $750 in prize money will go exactly to that. “There was a whole range of pitching, some that already had businesses that would use the money to further what they are doing and others who had an idea and wanted to use the money to help start a business,” said Angeley. “Winning the money was very helpful but everyone involved had information about their businesses on a table and they were able to interact with so many people. I received many great responses and will be able to partner and collaborate with other businesses.”

Finding a way

Krysten Callina, who won the $1,000 first prize with her business “Mastermind Adventures,” formed six months ago in Somerset, only even applied a week before the event thanks to her husband’s prodding. The idea for Mastermind Adventures sprouted about three years ago when Callina was looking for something for her then non -athletic 9-year-old that would keep him physically active. She created “Nerf Wars” at the Teamwork’s building in Somerset. “He wasn’t interested in sports and although he did martial arts, it wasn’t that physical, and he was chubby,” said Callina. The Nerf Wars idea immediately took off and what started as an idea for her son turned into about 100 kids wanting to take part. She came up with other themed events like the Harry Potter Quidditch and Percy Jackson. “I found there were other kids, like my son, who weren’t necessarily athletic, and who needed the exercise,” said Callina. “Suddenly, they were running and loving it.” But it’s not all running either.
