After spending most of 2017 on the road, the Startup Maryland team has compiled and edited video pitches from entrepreneurs around the state.
As of this week, more than 150 pitches filmed on the STRTIUP Road Show bus are now available on YouTube.
The pitches were completed by entrepreneurs who showed up to events during the tour, which extended to a year-round endeavor for its sixth edition after initially being held during a set time in September and October during the fall. The expansion allowed more time to spend at each site, said Startup Maryland CEO Mike Binko.

Along with being able to peruse, viewers can also vote on their favorites. It marks the audience portion of the Pitch Across Maryland competition. Startup Maryland will crown a winner when voting ends on Feb. 14 at noon.
Meanwhile, judges are also watching the pitches to pick eight finalists. The finalists will present at a showcase event in Annapolis, which will also include a chance to meet with potential angel investors and tech leaders. Details of that event have yet to be announced.
