Innovation at the Heart of Start! Peninsula 4.0

At the 2015 Start! Peninsula 4.0 event held in Newport News during the November 13-15 weekend, the panel of four local judges considered 23 great new business ideas pitched by area entrepreneurs at the “Shark Tank”-like event.

After the kickoff presentations on Friday, 10 finalists were selected to compete for a chance to win part of the $15,000 prize money, area incubator or accelerator space and other investment opportunities. Several of those who were not selected stayed for the weekend and joined one of the finalists’ teams. In the end, three winners rose to the top on Sunday evening with their innovative and polished business pitches. Click here to read more about the event and the top 10 finalists.
