Season 9 of “Start Up” Returns with Entrepreneurs Surviving Great Challenges

DIG SOUTH Tech Summit 2016 attendee and Emmy Award-nominated television docuseries highlighting the struggles and victories of entrepreneurs across the United States, START UP, returns for its ninth season in fall of 2021 featuring entrepreneurs from around the southeast! START UP provides an up-close and personal look into today’s small business stories.

In Season 9, creator and host Gary Bredow sits down with a wide range of diverse business owners along the southeastern coast to better understand how they’ve learned to adapt, innovate and even completely reinvent themselves amidst the chaos and uncertainty of the last two years.

“I believe that 2021 is about revival. Businesses are starting to adapt in ways we’ve never seen before. In a lot of respects, they’re right sizing and making their businesses more durable in an effort to withstand these extreme challenges,” says Bredow.

Season 9 will feature 13 businesses along the southeastern coast. “There’s an incredible entrepreneurial movement happening in places like Wilmington, Charleston, and Savannah, and we look forward to putting a National spotlight on more amazing business owners this season,” said Producer/Casting Director Jenny Feterovich.

Feterovich and Bredow appeared on panels at DIG SOUTH Tech Summit 2016.
