A delegation from Startup Maryland joins 10 other Startup America regional partners today in Washington, D.C., to brief White House officials and representatives from the Small Business Administration, Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Department of Commerce on how government can help support startup communities in cities across the U.S.
Heading up Maryland’s delegation is Julie Lenzer Kirk, Startup Maryland co-chair and executive director of the Howard County Economic Development Authority’s Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship. One of the items she’ll be highlighting is Pitch Across Maryland, the two-week-long tour of the state in September 2012 and startup competition that culminated in a pitching contest where CoFoundersLab and Woofound emerged victorious.
