15th annual Harold Grinspoon Foundation banquet held at The Log Cabin

HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) - The Harold Grinspoon Foundation held its 15th annual entrepreneurship banquet at The Log Cabin.

It was an evening of exhibits, competition, and awards as college students from 14 area schools delivered 90-second business pitches.

22News spoke with Marc Gammell the owner of the Treaty Biotech startup, who said attending the banquet last year helped his business.

"I met a bunch of students just like me running companies and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, we got some support from them which was super helpful in our early stages of growth," Gammell said.

The Grinspoon Foundation has supported educational and humanitarian initiatives in western Massachusetts since 1991.
