Submitted by Haley Stafford

(February 7, 2023) — The MEWS+ is hosting Middlesex StartUp Nights, with the first evening pitch event on Wednesday, February 22, 2023, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Sicily Coal Fired Pizza in Middletown.

The event provides Middlesex County-based early-stage entrepreneurs and startups with the opportunity to pitch their business ideas and share their backgrounds, markets, products, and business challenges.  Following the pitches, the startups will get a change to meet with audience members – fellow entrepreneurs, business mentors, and community members – in a small group setting to ask questions, receive feedback, and make connections.

For entrepreneurs and young businesses, the event can help validate ideas, refine products and services, improve presentation skills, and make introductions to the local entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Applications to pitch at the inaugural event are open until February 17, 2023 for Middlesex County-based entrepreneurs, startup founders, and new business owners, and can be found online:

Community members may register to attend the event on the MEWS+ website:
