MARYLAND - Making a sale often hinges on "the pitch" a short, focused summary of what you're selling. Monday, The Start-Up Maryland Entrepreneur Pitch Bus made its way across Delmarva making stops in Ocean City and Salisbury.
Once onboard, aspiring businessmen and women were given just 3 to 5 minutes to make their pitch. If they impressed a panel of experts, they could go on to present their ideas at an expo later this year, which could mean big things for their company. "We would hire more teachers and we would do different things. Grow our robotics, grow our mobile application development. It would be an exciting time for our company," said Eric Belardo, CEO of Digital Youth Experience.
Once the bus tour is complete, Maryland residents will have a chance to vote on their favorite pitch. When voting ends, the top 8 will move on to the next level of competition and one step closer to their dream.
