What you think is a story, really isn’t. What is a story, you’re not doing a great job of telling.

Our panelists of journalists will give you tips on how to craft your story to gain their attention and how to communicate with them. Once they have shared their tips, we will select entrepreneurs who have registered to pitch to the media panel.

Here is your chance to have your startup featured by the media outlets in attendance. Enter for your chance to be selected to pitch at the event by filling out the form at https://goo.gl/forms/LhJGGCqu8Tssnq3m1. If chosen, you will have 60 seconds to pitch your business. The outlets will follow up with questions. They will let you know then if they have an interest in learning more information.

Confirmed media outlets:
  • ABC Action News 
  • 83 Degrees Media 
  • St. Pete Catalyst 
  • Tampa Bay Business Journal - Tampa Bay Inno

(More media professionals to be added or substituted. Media features are at the discretion of the outlets and per their individual news company’s needs. Tampa Bay Startup is not liable for features or communications after the event.)
