StartRight! 2016 is On

It's StartRight! Pick Your Pitch time again!  Are you ready to vote?

Started in 2004 by REDI to encourage and support women's entrepreneurship, the legacy of the StartRight! Business Plan Competition for Women is carried on by REDI's Maryland Women's Business Center program.
 
This year,  StartRight! will award more than $13,000 in cash &
prizes for winning business plans, with a top prize of $5,000!
 
To qualify, the business must be at least 51% women owned, less than 3 years old, and be a registered business in Maryland.
 
The women who participate in the competition receive more than the opportunity to win a cash prize - they also receive valuable coaching and feedback on their business plan! 

Aside from the business plan presentation, the finalists have to pitch their business and plan to a group of judges, pulled from our business community and then record their pitches for the public to view and vote.  
  
Prizes for the business plan winners and the Pick Your Pitch winner,  will be announced and awarded at  The Power Conference  on August 25, at the Montgomery County Conference Center/Bethesda N. Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.
