Virginia Business announced the launch of the inaugural Start Virginia insert in the June 2023 issue, focusing on the startup ecosystem in Virginia. They’re looking for startups in Virginia that are doing innovative work and we are interested in sharing those stories with our readers in a feature called The Elevator Pitch. If you are, or you know of a company that should be included in The Elevator Pitch, please take a moment to fill out this survey, or share it with the appropriate person.

If you’re interested in participating, please have your company’s CEO respond to the questions below NO LATER THAN April 10, and include that person’s photo. They may reach out and to see if your CEO(s) would be willing to be photographed for the feature. Please include their phone number and email. While they cannot guarantee every respondent will make it to our June 2023 issue, they will hang on to responses for consideration for future coverage. 

The survey will expire on Monday, April 10 at 11:59 p.m. Please note, companies must be located in Virginia to participate.


If you have questions, please contact Associate Editor Courtney Mabeus-Brown at
