Local conference features tech entrepreneurs competing to win over $26K during Miami Tech Week
SuperConf 2012, a two-day conference where web development & entrepreneurship converge, will host nine startups with the opportunity to present to an audience of angel investors and venture capitalists to win $26K in cash and prizes, February 24th-25th, 2012 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The most influential tech startup experts, such as The Next Web, Slicehost, True Ventures and Quotidian Ventures, will be judging each of the nine startups based on their best elevator pitch for the chance to become the next Kickstarter, Facebook or Twitter. Datelatte, creating dating events in your city, Politify, allowing you to forecast your income for political scenarios and GoodMate, eliminating the common pains of living with roommates, are just a few of the startups entering SuperConf’s version of ‘Shark Tank’, Startup Blast Off.
The second day of the conference will feature a panel of speakers such as Jeremy Ashkenas of the New York Times and creator of programming language CoffeeScript, Zach Holman and Ben Bleikamp of GitHub, Jason L. Baptiste of OnSwipe, Chris Nagele of Wildbit, Richard Crowley of Square and Luke Seeley of MetaLab.
Senzari, an Internet based social music platform offering personalized radio stations, will be sponsoring the exclusive SuperConf after party at South Beach’s Mondrian Hotel to close out the conference.
“We are excited to have such an amazing roster of great startups, judges, speakers and sponsors at this year’s Conference,” said Auston Bunsen, Web Developer and SuperConf Founder. “With all of the incredible talent from across the country, our judges will have a difficult time choosing a winner this year.”
