Florida Startup Pitch Competition to National Investors
Learn from different types of real investors, Angel to VC, how each looks at the 90-second pitch, what they consider the anatomy of a great pitch...and then see great pitching in action!

10 great, early-stage Florida startups will pitch to our panel of investors about why their startup is awesome in 90 seconds or less.

These startups will receive immediate feedback from the panel, and the audience will hear in real time why a successful pitch to one investor may be a failure for another. The audience will then be able to cast their vote for "crowd favorite." The investors will collectively vote on a winner and runner-up from the competition.
