This past week Startup America had a Super Bowl challenge with the winner receiving an all inclusive VIP package to attend the Super Bowl with Scott Case. Both their second and first runner-ups received blog coverage of their startup, highlighting their pitch videos. Twenty-five registered firms where randomly selected and submitted a one minute pitch video on why they should be the winner. And THIS week they are giving away another Super Bowl ticket to a local Indianapolis firm. Check it out here: http://www.startupamericapartnership.org/content/our-startup-founder-wants-go-super-bowl
