PGCC INNOHUB Startup Cup Logo

The PGCC StartUp Cup is a Prince George’s County-wide pitch competition that identifies emerging local entrepreneurs with solid business ideas and connects them to the resources needed to start their businesses.

The StartUp Cup expands on the objectives of the Pitch Gladiator Competition and creates opportunities for entrepreneurial-minded individuals to develop their business ideas and start companies in Prince George’s County. The Innovation Hub at Prince George’s Community College (INNOHUB@PGCC) supports entrepreneurs throughout the process.

The PGCC StartUp Cup serves a broad spectrum of innovators that are part of the Prince George’s Community College ecosystem. Participants can be students, faculty, and local Prince George’s County residents who have a great idea for a business.

The PGCC StartUp Cup will take committed entrepreneurs through three phases to get their business idea to market:

Phase I: Accelerator
Phase II: Projection & Prototype
Phase III: Pitch Competition

Applications for spring 2024 coming soon!
