The StartRight! Women's Business Plan Competition was founded in 2004 by Rockville Economic Development, Inc. (REDI) to encourage and support women’s entrepreneurship. Now run by the Maryland Women's Business Center, an initiative of REDI, StartRight! awards prizes for winning business plans each year.
