KeyStart Application Deadline is Thursday

What is KeyStart?

KeyStart is an idea submission and pitch competition which will award a $5,000 investment to one new business idea per bimonthly program cycle. The purpose of this program is to provide entrepreneurs with fast access to capital in order to turn ideas into real companies.

How the program works:

We will accept all applications online. Applications will be screened and evaluated by a steering committee. The three strongest applicants will be considered finalists and will be invited to participate in the KeyStart pitch competition. The committee will also select three semifinalists who will have the chance to earn their way into the pitch event finalist group by way of community choice voting.
Details and application available online at
