Friday Startup Showcase | Startup Week Tampa Bay

This is it! The startups have shown their goods, we have voted and it all comes down to the final Startup Showcase here at Armature Works for Tampa Bay Startup Week! It was a tough decision, but the OZK Bucks have spoken! Before I reveal the winners, let me remind you of the prizes:

1st place in each city will receive 6 months of co-working at Tampa Bay Wave and Rising Tide Innovation Center as well as a Feature in PitchLyst and Startup Report donated by St Pete Catalyst.

2nd place in each city will receive 3 months of co-working at Tampa Bay Wave and Rising Tide Innovation Center as well as a Feature in PitchLyst and Startup Report donated by St Pete Catalyst.

3rd place in each city will receive 1 month of co-working at Tampa Bay Wave and Rising Tide Innovation Center as well as a Feature in PitchLyst and Startup Report donated by St Pete Catalyst.

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…

In 3rd place, it was… Lunchpool! This is an app that helps you build stronger connections during your lunch break simply by inviting people in your community to lunch.

In 2nd place, you voted for… RedPerit! This company is refinancing student loans with income share agreements.

And the 1st place prize went to… Fruutful! Probably the first startup at Tampa Bay Startup Week that specializes in making the most inclusive bras.

But that’s not all! We had an overall winner who got the most votes out of both showcases. This grand prize winner gets a Meet & Greet lunch/tour of Bank OZK Innovation Labs and a chance to talk with the Bank OZK product and engineering team to get advice and help with their startup. And that honor goes to the great… Script!!

Thanks one and all for attending Tampa Bay Startup Week and for participating in the Startup Showcase! Thanks to the sponsors, and we’ll see you all next year!
