MIT Enterprise Forum offering 'GeekTank'

Do you have what it takes to turn the head of an angel investor?  The MIT Enterprise Forum South Florida, the Miami Innovation Fund and Edwards Wildman  are teaming up to offer a "GeekTank" event, giving four startups the opportunity to compete for a $20,000 term sheet from the Miami Innovation Fund, a local angel group that invests in very early-stage companies, $5,000 in legal services through Edwards Wildman’s Help Innovators Thrive program, and a LAB Miami membership valued at $6,000. The four chosen companies will get 15 minutes each to make their presentations at the event from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday, June 18 at Citrix in Fort Lauderdale. 
If you are a technology startup building a SaaS product, gaming app, mobile app, software product, and/or a social networking product and want to submit your business plan for consideration, do so at http://gust.com/angel-group/miami-innovation-fund. The deadline to submit for consideration has been extended to 6 p.m. June 11.
Even if you are not competing, the event offers an opportunity to gain insights into how angel investors make their decisions (not to mention there is networking, free food and an open bar). There is no charge for startups and students to attend the event. "Our mission at MIT Enterprise Forum South Florida is to foster the entrepreneurial community and we hope this event helps keep the momentum going," said Franc Nemanic, who is on the boards of both the MIT Forum and the MIF.
