At the end of the 2013 Pitch Across Maryland tour, Startup Maryland uploaded more than 160 video pitches to their YouTube channel. The view-votes for the "Fan Favorite" competition of the Pitch Across Maryland have been tallied.
This year there are three (3) Fan Favorites:
On Wednesday, November 13, Pitch Across Maryland will announce the Eight Finalists (Great 8) that are selected by a panel of angel/venture capital investors and serial entrepreneurs. The Great 8 will be in the running for the Pitch Across Maryland Winner and Runner-Up designations.
The Great 8 will be invited to present their ventures again at TEDCO's Entrepreneur Expo (www.innovate.md). Another panel of investors and entrepreneur peers will select the Winner and Runner-up. Both of these companies will be fast-tracked into Maryland DBED's $400,000 InvestMaryland Challenge (http://investmarylandchallenge.org/)- bypassing the first round of qualifying.
