ANDERSON - Vesuvius Coworking in Anderson is holding its first ever pitch night. Thursday's event at the Mainstage Theater will focus on businesses that are located in or benefit Madison County. The organization has narrowed participants down to six after receiving nearly three dozen applications.

The initial call-out message was seeking "any idea big or small, even nonprofit is welcome." The winner, as voted by the audience, will receive $6,000 toward their proposal.

Vesuvius, located in downtown Anderson, is one of the most recent spaces of its kind in the state and bills itself as a connection point to "unite this hive of individual innovators to turn downtown Anderson into a gathering place for entrepreneurs."
