Who Can Attend Startup Weekend Tampa Bay

Startup Weekend is not an open event. Attendees HAVE to pay to attend. We do have speakers, coaches and judges attending at specified times as well as media that will be dropping in throughout the weekend to see the progress of the teams, but we will not and do not allow drop-ins to the event.

We say this because each event we turn away people that show up just looking to “network” or see where the teams are. This is not a networking event so please do not make us have to turn you away.

If you have a question about attending you can email the Tampa Bay Startup Weekend team at: tampa [at] startupweekend [dot] org

Startup Weekend After Party

The weekend has yet to begin, but  we wanted to let you know so you can prepare to attend the wrap-up after party at MacDinton’s in St. Petersburg at 9pm. First 2 drinks will be on us at Startup Weekend Tampa Bay and they will have 2-4-1 specials all night!

More details to come!
