Start Peninsula Announces Micro Pitch Competitions

NEWPORT NEWS-Start Peninsula will host a series of four micro pitch competitions this year for potential new businesses.

Micro pitch competitions will be held this spring on March 18 and April 21 and in the fall on September 15 and October 6. Winners from each micro pitch competition will participate in the Start Peninsula main event on November 3.

Start Peninsula builds entrepreneurship on the Peninsula by helping start or create new businesses. Ideas and concepts are pitched during the early stages of development of a business and Start Peninsula connects those with a product or service to business leaders and mentors.

Six regional Economic Development Authorities support Start Peninsula: Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, Williamsburg, James City County, and York County. Newport News will host this year’s rounds of competition. Events will be conducted virtually due to the pandemic.

Roughly 250 business ideas have been pitched through Start Peninsula since it began in 2012.
