Meet Your Host
Startup Local is excited to host the first Chamber Innovation Contest! Our goal is to celebrate the chamber industry's most innovative chambers and showcase the ideas that are breathing new life and energy into communities throughout North America. We are grateful to ChamberMaster for their sponsorship of this event and to our friends at Frank J. Kenny, Membership180, and Hight Performance Group for serving as event judges.
About Startup Local
The Chamber Innovation Contest is powered by our propietary competition platform that makes it simple for chambers to host exciting business competitions.
Our story is really a chamber story. In 2012, we partnered with the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce to host the first Carroll Biz Challenge to celebrate and support local entrepreneurs. Entering its third year, the competition is a centerpiece of the community's efforts to inspire local innovation and entrepreneurship. Building on the legacy of the Carroll Biz Challenge, we also partnered with the chamber to host business competition for high school students. Through our Startup Local Platform and Service we look forward to helping many more chambers deliver the same amazing experiences to entrepreneurs and students in their community.
