It’s that time of year again! StartUp Maryland has announced the dates and route of their 2016 STRT1UP Road Show, their 5th annual tour of Maryland that celebrates entrepreneurship and gives startups the opportunity to hone their pitch.
Since the launch of the road show in 2012, more than 1000 Maryland startup companies have participated. Citing the huge variety of industry sectors that Maryland startups have entered, Startup Maryland CEO Michael Binko explains that the STRT1UP Road Show “proudly shines a spotlight on the diversity of our innovation categories and the ecosystem supporting them.
At each stop along the tour, Startup Maryland and their partners and sponsors host rallies and events sharing information about Maryland entrepreneurship. Startups and entrepreneurs are given the chance to step aboard the Startup Maryland bus and pitch their idea in the bus’ mobile studio. The pitches are then uploaded to Startup Maryland’s YouTube channel where the public can view them and vote on their favorites as part of the Pitch Across Maryland competition.
