Startup Weekend Tampa is all about becoming an entrepreneur in just 54 hours. You’ll accomplish more in one weekend than you otherwise would have with months of effort. But the real test for your business comes after the doors close on Sunday night – when the spotlight is gone and you crash from your weekend-long emotional high, will you be ready to build your startup? Over the course of the weekend, we want to make sure that we teach you useful skills and put you in a position to form lasting relationships with peers, mentors, judges, and sponsors. Our hope is that you can carry that momentum into your new life as an entrepreneur.

For teams that place in the top three at Startup Weekend Tampa, our community partners have made generous donations to ensure you have the resources you need to accelerate your startup after the event ends.

Below you’ll find the prize packages for first, second, & third place and the Community Leaders that made them possible.
