Pitch Across Maryland: pitch bus returns for second tour on Sept. 9 [VIDEO]

Pitch Across Maryland 2.0 will go through Sept. 27, with two stops in Baltimore.

The Pitch Across Maryland bus.

More than 160 startups at 25 locations around Maryland stepped aboard the Pitch Across Maryland bus last September during its inaugural tour to celebrate entrepreneurship in Maryland.
The bus will be on the road again for Pitch Across Maryland 2.0 starting Sept. 9 and going through Sept. 27. The schedule as of now is tentative, but at least two stops will be made in Baltimore city.
The tentative Pitch Across Maryland 2.0 bus schedule:


As Technically Baltimore reported last year, the bus itself is set up as a mobile video studio for entrepreneurs to deliver three- to five-minute video pitches. Judges viewed the videos and whittled down the 168 pitches to eight finalists, which pitched at November’s Entrepreneur Expo.
CoFoundersLab and Woofound were the winner and runner-up, respectively, of last year’s Pitch Across Maryland competition. No money was awarded to winning startups last year, and there’s no word yet whether seed money of some kind will be available for startups who pitch this year.
