Start Peninsula

Friday, November 1, 2019

Start Peninsula is a weekend-long event that combines a pitch competition with business education and celebrates the local entrepreneurial ecosystem. Early-stage businesses are invited to apply to pitch at Start Peninsula. If a business is invited to pitch at Start Peninsula, they must pay a fee of $75 before Oct. 1 or $100 after that. Thirty businesses will be invited to pitch on Friday, Nov. 1, and three winners will be selected on Sunday, Nov. 3. “We are excited to host Start Peninsula at Hampton University. Start Peninsula has proven to be a valuable entrepreneurship initiative on the Peninsula and we are thrilled to welcome early-stage businesses to pitch at this year’s event,” said Chuck Rigney, Hampton's Economic Development director. Start Peninsula 2019 is hosted by Hampton in partnership with Newport News, Williamsburg, Poquoson, James City County and York County.
