Launch Gloucester is the entrepreneur contest happening now on Gloucester’s Main Street, the Gloucester Village, and includes an eight-week business-training course that kicks off in March and will run through May. The program will culminate with a pitch night and winners will receive $95,000 worth of support to launch their businesses.

The program was made possible thanks to a grant awarded to Gloucester as part of Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s first ever Virginia Community Business Launch.
