About the StartRight! Business Plan Competition

StartRight! was created in 2004 by Rockville Economic Development, Inc. (REDI) as a regional competition to encourage women entrepreneurs to write their business plans, leading to stronger companies. The Maryland Women’s Business Center (an initiative of REDI) began overseeing the competition in 2013 and made it state-based, with ongoing support for entrants as they work to develop their plans by offering additional counseling, coaching, and relevant workshops.
