Start Peninsula Plans Alumni Event For Entrepreneurs

Start Peninsula will host an Alumni Night event on June 9. Select previous winners will be on deck for the virtual event, which will include a panel discussion about their entrepreneurial experiences and their involvement with Start Peninsula.

Participants include Handheld Handyman; Hottrok; Instant Teams; My wave Coffee Brewer; Occasion Genius; and Senior Runs.

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 then Start Peninsula connects those with a product or service to business leaders and mentors.

More than 100 entrepreneurs have participated in Start Peninsula since its inception. There have been more than 27 finalists, some of whom have raised more than $17 million in capital, landed a deal with Mark Cuban on ABC’s Shark Tank, and been invited to the White House for an appearance.

Start Peninsula’s inaugural Alumni Night will be held virtually on Wednesday, June 9, at 6pm. The event is free, although registration is required. For more information, click here.
