2020 Virtual Statewide Collegiate Startup Competition
Celebrating 10 years!
OCTOBER 14-15, 2020
CALLING ALL UNIVERSITES!
GRAND PRIZE MONEY: $10,000.00

On October 14-15, 2020, the Florida Venture Forum and the Florida Venture Education Foundation, will virtually host the 10th Annual Statewide Collegiate Start-up Competition to coincide with the 13th Annual Florida Early Stage Capital Conference. Previous university competitors have secured over $20 Million in funding to date! The Florida Venture Forum is now calling on universities throughout the State of Florida to bring their selected candidate to compete before a panel of investor judges and to be this year’s grand prize winner!
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the competition, Space Florida will award $10,000.00 as part of its Accelerating Innovation (AI) Award, to the winning university competitor.
Upon competitor selection by each participating university there will also be an Executive Summary form to be filled out which will be included in the conference app and available to all attendees. Participating universities will be asked to submit their selected competitor’s 5-minute PowerPoint/mp4 file presentation to the Florida Venture Forum before the final cutoff date of October 2, 2020. Each student’s pre-recorded presentation will be shown on October 14-15, 2020 at scheduled times throughout the day.

Looking forward to hearing from the “BEST OF THE BEST” representing Florida’s finest universities! Contact Pat Schneider, Vice President of the Florida Venture Forum, for more details pat@flventure.org or 813.335.8116.
