Entrepreneurs Invited To Pitch For Start-Up MD

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - Entrepreneurs were invited out to pitch right near their front doors Monday. The Start-Up Maryland "Entrepreneur Pitch Bus" started the day in Downtown Ocean City. Individuals were invited to pitch their business plans in two-to-four minute presentations. It's all part of a 15-day bus tour.

The Pitch Tour is a program of Startup Maryland, a regional initiative launched out of the Startup America Partnership. Entrepreneurs get on the bus to pitch their idea/business in the mobile UpStart Show™ video studio. Videos are uploaded to YouTube® and are then open to public viewing/voting.

In 2012 at the inaugural Pitch Across Maryland Tour, more than 225 startups participated and 168 startups "pitched" their ideas/businesses at 25 stops. Video pitches were narrowed down to three top Fan Favorites and eight finalists were named Best Candidates for Venture Investment.

Monday afternoon the bus will be in Downtown Salisbury. It arrives at 4PM at the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce building on East Main Street. The Pitch bus will also make an informational stop that day at hotDesks, the region's first co-working space. The 1,800 square foot facility is located off Route 50 at the Tri-County Multi-Purpose Center, 31901 Tri-County Way, Salisbury.
