Shark Tank-style Startup Events: How’s your elevator pitch? StartupPOP, a Boca Raton-based organization that seeks to connect entrepreneurs and investors, wants to put it to the test with Shark Tank-style Startup Events.

On Sept. 21 at 6 p.m., StartupPOP will host Demo Day, a pitch event open to the public at Cendyn Spaces, one block north of Mizner Park. The showcase invites startups and entrepreneurs to polish and present three-minute pitches to a panel of three judges.
StartupPOP team member Dan Gudema said about 100 attendees are expected at the event — bringing much attention to the 10 voices that will ultimately take the stage with startup ideas. It will be the 15th showcase in three years hosted by the organization.
Those interested in attending can register online, while those interested in pitching can also sign up for this Shark Tank-style Startup Event.

HOST-SPONSORS: Host a StartupPOP Event at Your Location
There is no Sponsorship fee for hosting an event – we just ask that you supply a few necessities and some light snacks. StartupPOP events can be held at almost any space, but greatly benefit locations such as co-working spaces, tech incubators, executive suites, retail and restaurants or atriums in traditional commercial/office spaces. You’ll not only help build companies that create jobs and opportunities in your city, help talented people of all ages find work and create jobs — you’ll promote your own entity too. more >>
