This time, we'll be hosting our event in Ybor City, a hotbed for new Tampa startups, in the historic Cuban Club. You'll have access to a ton of potential customers on the streets as well as all the resources you will need within the venue to be ready to pitch to our esteemed panel of judges on the gorgeous theatre stage Sunday night.
