Startup South Portland is a series of business pitch contests starting on September 13, 2017, at 6 p.m. These events will highlight the entrepreneurial talent that we have in South Portland, Scarborough, Westbrook and Cape Elizabeth. To be eligible, you must be preparing to launch a new business or operating a small business with less than $100,000 in annual revenue (whether incorporated or not) and based in one of those four communities (business location or primary residence).  

Participants will compete before a panel of seasoned entrepreneurs and other judges, and winners will take home cash prizes. Additionally, the live pitches will be taped and broadcast on public access TV and available online via VIMEO. Events are open to the public, so invite your friends to watch as you compete!

Startup South Portland is presented by the City of South Portland and its Economic Development Committee, in partnership with Opticliff Law, LLC. Our financial sponsor, Peoples United Bank, has graciously provided prize money for the 1st and 2nd place winners each night.
