We are planning on running the next Tech Startup Pitch Event, nick-named The Founder’s Splash! on March 29th, 2017 at 6pm at Serendipity Labs in Aventura, FL. The event is $15 to RSVP and $25 at the door. You can RSVP here but you will still have to pay at the door! To get the $15 price, you would need to RSVP either here on Eventbrite or on the North Miami Tech Startup Meetup here!
If your startup had been one of the companies pitching or paid for a demo day at our last event in Fort Lauderdale, your startup would have received this press thanks to work by Heath Jones. Really quite amazing. See these links. Digital Journal, Fox 34 News, ABC 6 News, Telemundo, CBS 2 (Utica), NBC Affiliate Billings, ABC 25. And just having your startup listed here gets it indexed on Google and could be picked up by the Sun-Sentinel, SFBJ, Palm Beach Post, Miami Herald. See this Sun-Sentinel Link.
This event is $15 in advance. At the door, the event is $25. If you are interested in DEMO’ing your tech at one of our tables or buying a table as a sponsor during the event, please see DEMO info below.
