If you are not familiar with GSB, you are in for a treat.
1. Reigning teams from Startup Weekend Tampa and other participating cities will go head to head in a climactic “best of the best” brawl.
2. Each team has 24 hours, a 90-second pitch, and a 15-word description to defend their startup in an introductory video.
3. Each video pitch is posted online and the global voting madness begins.
4. Votes from around the world will decide which startup is left standing.
