Pitch Across Maryland celebrates entrepreneurship throughout Maryland. A Maryland-themed tour bus travels around the State. At each stop, 3-minute pitches made by pre-selected startups will be filmed in the on board video studio. Qualified videos are posted online for “Fan Favorites” voting. A panel of venture capitalists and angel investors also select 8 companies with the strongest potential for growth. These companies will present at the Maryland Entrepreneur Expo in November at the BWI Airport Marriott where the Startup Maryland winner is chosen.
