BizBlitz supports new ventures and entrepreneurs in a fast-paced, inspirational, and hands-on weekend where developers, marketers, designers, and dreamers join efforts to generate ideas, build prototypes and launch businesses!

The event begins with open-to-all pitches on Friday evening. Teams come together around the best ideas and spend the weekend in market research and product development. The weekend concludes on Sunday evening in front of the judges, but everyone wins the valuable feedback. Cash prizes plus other valuable prizes are awarded.

BizBlitz is hosted by the Shenandoah Valley Innovation Coalition and local partners.
