The Startup Maryland Bus is also a production studio, and your pitch will turn into a 2-3 minute video.  After the bus tour wraps-up, videos are posted online. Two online voting competitions from September through November will determine "Fan Favorites” and which companies have the “Strongest Potential for High Growth” according to a panel of VC/angel investors.

The bus will be parked in front of Brewer’s Alley, and Brewer’s will serve as the spot for those pitching, family, friends, business partners, and supporters to gather and network before and after the pitches. Join us for light refreshments and a chance to support entrepreneurs in the community. It's noteworthy that Brewer's Alley is also owned by a local restaurant entrepreneur, and an example of the opportunity in Frederick for small businesses.
