Give entrepreneurs in your community an accessible opportunity to get noticed, get connected, get better, and get started.
Through our partnerships with local organizations, we deliver a live business startup contest experience that is sure to inspire innovation and entrepreneurship in your community.
Local entrepreneurs are invited to submit their startup business pitches for a chance to present their concept in front of a live audience and panel of judges (kind of like American Idol for entrepreneurs). The winner walks away with a cash prize, loads of publicity, and the support of an entire community as they venture to make their business dreams a reality. Learn more.
Hometown Startups powers business startup contests in local communities around the United States. Our goal is to help start 2,000 businesses and funnel 10 million dollars into local startups by 2018.
