Startup Maryland and their startup road show continue to grow. The STRT1UP bus travels all across the state of Maryland attracting startups to pitch their companies onboard the bus. Those pitches are shown off on the website where they are competing to land a spot to pitch at the STRT1UP Showcase on March 14th.  The Startup Maryland organization was developed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs and is grounded in the 4C’s; Celebration, Coaching, Curation and Capital.

This year, Startup Maryland and the STRT1UP Road Show added new subcategories for the competition that got more of the state’s startups interested in participating. It was a record turn out at road show stops and will ensure a very competitive showcase.

“By adding sub-categories this year we are able to recognize innovators and ventures that represent sectors critical to Maryland and the region.  If 2017 is any indication, the competitive nature of the STRT1UP Roadshow has been raised to the next level.  All tour stop hosts and partners are going to have to rally their communities and we look forward to 2018,” added Michael Venezia, Ecosystem Director for Startup Maryland.
