Startup Weekend: Beverage Edition


Everyone has ideas. Everyone is an innovator. But an entrepreneur is someone who takes an idea and acts upon it. Startup Weekend is the opportunity to take an idea and turn it in to action, and, at the end of a weekend, pitch to panel of judges who have either a venture background or startup background.

May 20-22, Startup Weekend returns to Tampa Bay. The focus this time is “beverages,” and is geared toward craft brewers, coffee connoisseurs, new protein movers and shakers, or the next innovator for beverage products. A group of hustlers, developers, business managers, startup enthusiasts, marketing gurus, and graphic artists will come together to pitch ideas for startup companies, form teams around those ideas, and work to develop a working prototype, demo, and presentation by Sunday evening.

Winners walk away with prizes, access to local resources, recognition from big players in the Tampa business community, and startup glory. Everyone leaves with a new business, incredible friends, and an unforgettable experience.
