OCEAN CITY — The second annual Start-Up Maryland returned to Ocean City this week, beginning its next round of promoting the state’s entrepreneurs.
Businessmen and women are being invited throughout September to participate in Start-Up’s bus tour by visiting event stops to record a video pitch for their product or idea that could earn them a spot in the upcoming Invest Maryland Challenge.
Start-Up Maryland got the full support of Worcester County and Ocean City Monday when the bus made the resort its first stop.
“In Ocean City, we thrive on our business community and the success of our local entrepreneurs,” said City Councilwoman Mary Knight. “If it weren’t for the talent, skills, creativity and innovation of our Maryland residents, we would not have the landmark business that you see in Ocean City today.”
