The Starting Line is an innovative competition designed for entrepreneurial ventures without a financial track record — the budding entrepreneur — the purist form of a start-up.


Pitch your idea, persuade their team of its merit and you will have the chance to win up to $5,000 in start-up cash (and more!)! All you need is an up to 90 second video describing your idea! If we move forward with your project we will provide mentors, training and more.

Up to (4) $5000 Awards ($20,000 in total funding broken down into four categories) + training and mentoring services. Up to an additional $10,000 (total) in Grant Funding through Ben Franklin Technology Partners. Launching October 1st!
