StartupPOP’s Mission is to Build and Support the Tech Startup Community.
Startups not only create jobs & opportunities, they help strengthen the backbone of our communities. Created as a way for entrepreneurs, young and old, to get exposure to investors, and for Investors, angels and VCs to find ‘diamonds in the rough,’ These are the companies that, with the right support could blossom into ‘the next big thing.’
“How’s your elevator pitch? StartupPOP, an organization that connects entrepreneurs and investors, wants to put it to the test.”
We hold events where up to 10 people get up for 3 minutes to give a pitch for their tech startup in front of a panel of investors and experts and the audience. Networking takes place before and after the pitches.
We also have other live and web events, as well as an Online Membership and Networking Community that connects investors, entrepreneurs, mentors and supporters.
We are interested in start-ups of all kinds but mostly focus on tech start-ups. We welcome those in all phases of development, including those simply interested in learning how to create a viable start-up. Our focus is preparing entrepreneurs for either finding a technology partner, business partner, mentor or advisor, raising capital or simply receiving feedback. There is no age, education or background limit. If you have an interest in creating a viable tech business that can creates jobs and grows the local economy — or if you just want to be part of the audience — you are welcome to attend our events.
StartupPOP’s pitch and networking events are a breeding ground for the most promising entrepreneurs and startups in the South Florida region.” says RecordGram CO Founder Erik Mendelson. “My company received an amazing press write up in the Sun Sentinel as a direct result of Dan’s influential recommendation after hearing me pitch at his event. I greatly enjoy attending the StartupPOP events and seeing so many innovative ideas from entrepreneurs—the kind of business people who built America.”
