What does a startup need most?

If you ask most entrepreneurs, money is probably at the top of the list. To help meet this need, MIT South Florida & MIF have teamed up to offer a lucky winner or winners the opportunity to compete for a $50,000 term sheet from MIF in front of the GeekTank panel for one night only.

What is the Reverse Investor Pitch?
Ever wonder why you just can’t seem to get the attention of Investors? Ever wonder why the investor you have talked to that seemed so enthusiastic when you first met will no longer return your phone calls? Wonder no longer! Our expert panel will provide you with all the answers to the questions that you have always wanted to have answered, as you the audience, get the chance to grill the investors and ask them the tough questions. This will be an invaluable opportunity to peek inside the minds of some of South Florida’s most active angel investors.

How do I apply to be a Geektank presenter?
If you are a technology startup building a SaaS product, gaming app, mobile app, software product, and/or a social networking product please submit your business plan to MIF via:

There is no cost to submit your company and the deadline for submissions is June 17th at 6 PM!

In addition the the $50K term  sheet, Edwards Wildman will be donating $5,000 in legal services to the winner as part of its Helping Innovators Thrive (HIT) program. HIT is designed to provide qualified entrepreneurs and young companies with access to strategic legal advice to jump start goals and achieve success. That is why Edwards Wildman dedicates over $2 million each year to its HIT program.

Does your company have what it takes to win?
