Entrepreneur? Pitch Your Idea Statewide
Posted by the Community Development Corporation
Very soon, you’ll be hearing a lot more about the Pitch Across Maryland bus tour bringing a state-wide business pitch competition, sponsored by Startup Maryland, to St. Mary’s County entrepreneurs.
For two weeks in September, the Startup Maryland Pitch bus will visit communities and business centers throughout the state. The bus is equipped with a mobile video studio where entrepreneurs will record a 3‐5 minute business pitch promoting a unique invention, product, service or idea in search of investors. These videos will be posted online for public voting for the most promising innovations to be found across Maryland. The top 16 vote-getters will qualify to pitch at the November Entrepreneur Expo and vie for the Winner and Runner-up positions.
On Tuesday, September 18th, the bus comes to Southern Maryland, with stops at all three College of Southern Maryland campuses — La Plata, Leonardtown and Prince Frederick. The Startup Maryland Pitch Bus will be at the Leonardtown campus from 1:00 p.m. till 3:00 p.m.
Participation is open to everyone until all slots are filled. There is no cost to enter but pre-registration is required. If you can’t participate during the bus stop in St. Mary’s County, we can arrange for you participate in either La Plata or Prince Frederick.
If you or someone you know might be interested in competing in the Pitch Across Maryland Contest, please forward this email and help get the word out. To register for the contest, contact my office at 301-863-7700. And of course, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to e-mail CDC executive director Robin Finnacom at Robin.Finnacom@stmarysmd.com.
We look forward to seeing you on the 18th!
