The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce partnered with the North Dargan Innovation Center to host a business pitch contest held on June 10. Participants pitched a number of new ideas, recently started business, and small business. The competition was dubbed Florence Business Shark Tank, after the popular television show of the same name.
