The pitch-style competition, hosted by Cox Business, invites startups to apply.

Now through May 31, dreamers and risk-takers can enter for a chance to win big in Get Started Rhode Island.

The “Shark Tank”-style competition, hosted by Cox Business, invites local entrepreneurs to submit free applications for consideration by a panel of judges. Semifinalists are announced on June 30, with each participating in a workshop in July to fine-tune their pitches before finalists are announced on July 22.  The top business owners will go on to compete at the virtual Get Started Rhode Island competition on September 29.
