About Geek Tank

MIT has hosted this event 3 times in the past, featuring angel backed fintech startup Waleteros out of Miami in 2014, who received a $25,000 term sheet but declined the aggressive valuation. This year, four winners will be chosen from the Gust group and chosen to present to a panel of early stage investors including Chris Callahan, founder of Startup Palm Beach Capital, Jack Karabees, co-founder of the Miami Innovation Fund, and Andrew Heitner, principal at Alcon Partners. In addition, Howard Gitten, technology lawyer at full service, international firm Locke Lorde, is organizing and sponsoring the event with $5,000 credit in a legal retainer, enough to help incorporate and/or advise as needed, and Peter Haines, of Horizon Growth Advisors, is providing $5,000 in-kind consulting services to the winner. The winner will be announced live at the night of the event, scheduled from 6:30pm-9pm at Keiser University, 2600 N. Military Trail in West Palm Beach. Tickets are $30 until September 15th and $35 after that.
