Startup Competition Aims to Launch And Support Entrepreneurs and Developers in Miami, FL
On May 4, 2020, SuperConf, a Miami-based tech conference for entrepreneurs, developers, and designers, announced the winner and runner-up of its 2020 Startup Launch Competition. The highly anticipated competition was meant to take place in-person on March 13–14, 2020, but went digital due to COVID-19.
Starting in 2011, multiple well-known startups such as ShoeFitr, Boatsetter, and LiveNinja were launched at previous SuperConf conferences. The conference has also featured prominent speakers and presenters, from early engineers at Dropbox to creators at Coffeescript.
As sponsors of this year’s competition, CORPlaw offered legal services and consultations to the grand prize winner, runner-up, and competition participants.
“From a legal perspective, they will need assistance not only from an incorporation and capital raising standpoint, but also in terms of contracting, technology law, intellectual property protection, licensing, and, for most of them, from a regulatory perspective.”, says Mrs. Corpion.
The judges of the 2020 SuperConf Startup Launch Competition were Brian Breslin from RefreshMiami, Louis Kang of Neoteny Ventures, Josh Constine from TechCrunch, Nico Beradi at Animo Ventures, and Shruti Ghandi of Array VC. Each judge received one vote for the competition. After, voting polls were posted on Twitter where the online startup community voted on their favorite virtual pitch.
As the SuperConf grand prize winner, PTO Genius, an HR tool that encourages people throughout the year to take paid time off when it is less disruptive for the company, won $10,000.00 in cash and other services.
Congratulations to PTO Genius and the other companies that participated in SuperConf’s 2020 Launch Cohort!
