Start! Peninsula builds on the success and continues the momentum of previous regional “Start” events in Richmond and Hampton Roads.
Designed to capitalize on the proximity of Hampton University, Christopher Newport University, The College of William and Mary, Jefferson Lab, The National Institute of Aerospace and NASA’s Langley Research Center, it is our goal to create almost a dozen businesses in one weekend and over the next three years to change the way people on the Peninsula and Hampton Roads regionally think about entrepreneurship and the role it plays in the local economy.
The goal is to catalyze the creation of high tech/high growth potential businesses by bringing all of the resources (ideas, technical expertise, business expertise, capital) together on one weekend, to identify the most viable ideas and to invest resources in those ideas over an intensive weekend to jumpstart the businesses into going concerns.
