Opportunity is knocking close to home for Maryland entrepreneurs. Startup Maryland’s Pitch Across Maryland 2014 tour will kick off on Sept. 15 and continue through Oct. 3 with stops across the State. In its third year, Startup Maryland is teaming up with the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) as a full-tour sponsor.
Pitch Across Maryland tour stops—from Hooper Island to Cumberland—bring information and resources directly to local entrepreneurs. Business mentors, industry leaders and active angel/VC investors provide coaching, guidance and support. On the tour bus, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to pitch their business or plan in the UpStart Show video studio. Videos are then loaded onto YouTube where viewers can vote and share the pitches. The eight Best Ventures for High Growth Potential Finalists will be chosen to present at the TEDCO Entrepreneur Expo on Nov. 12.
