Yes to Startups Pitch Competition Invests in Local Businesses

Ten local businesses were awarded cash prizes from a Yuba County-hosted "Shark Tank"-style pitch competition.

Yes to Yuba -- Yuba County's economic development division -- partnered with Sacramento Valley Small Business Development Center to celebrate and invest in Yuba County entrepreneurs. 

The Yes to Startups program started with a six-week, free training series that offered business education, resources, and technical assistance to aspiring entrepreneurs. Participants then pitched their business ideas in a competition series in Marysville. The grand prize winner won $10,000 in start-up funding; second place won $7,500; third place won $5,000, and the remaining seven in the top 10 received $2,500. 

First place: 2Talls Sweet Treats
Second place: Emmylou's Hot Food
Third place: Rodent Wrangler /  Western Equine Wellness
