2020 marked the ninth annual Start Peninsula. More early stage businesses than ever were invited to participate in virtual micropitch competitions held on July 14, September 22 and October 13, each with four winners and one alternate winner. All of the micropitch winners were invited to the Start Peninsula main event on November 4 at the Williamsburg Regional Library.
Start Peninsula is backed by six regional Economic Development Authorities, as well as dozens of business leaders and mentors eager to support our local entrepreneurial ecosystem. At the main event, the top three winners received free access to local resources and $5,000 to fuel their business growth. The top three winners from each micropitch event received $500 towards building their businesses.
