BOCA RATON, FL, May 05, 2016 – As part of an ongoing commitment to support and foster innovation and local business, MoreVisibility is a proud Platinum Sponsor for FAU Tech Runway’s 2016 VIP Dinner and Launch Competition taking place on May 19 and 20 in Boca Raton, FL. As FAU Tech Runway’s digital agency of record, MoreVisibility looks forward to helping promote the 2016 Launch Competition as well as continue to collaborate with the Tech Runway team on their website and online presence.
FAU’s Adams Center for Entrepreneurship, with the support of all 10 Colleges and the Research Park at FAU, created Tech Runway in 2014 to be a place where entrepreneurs find the complete ecosystem to house, educate, mentor and fund their companies from inception through venturing. The Launch Competition includes two days of events. MoreVisibility is proudly underwriting the private VIP dinner, which is aimed at creating awareness and support for Tech Runway. Dinner guests, comprised of entrepreneurs, business leaders and government officials, will have the opportunity to learn about and contribute to the next generation of entrepreneurs. The invitation-only dinner will take place on Thursday, May 19 from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at FAU Tech Runway’s headquarters on the FAU Campus. Additional details about the dinner and the Launch Competition are available here.
The Launch Competition Award Ceremony is the culmination of a multi-week business vetting and evaluation which results in admission to Tech Runway’s one-year incubator program where the start-ups begin their journey. Winners will receive a 16-week boot camp, support from MIT Venture trained mentors, collaborative workspace and a $25,000 grant to fund their startup. This year’s event, taking place on Friday, May 20 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. is slated to host more than 200 guests.
“We are thrilled to participate in and be a Platinum Sponsor for the Tech Runway Launch Competition this year. We wholly support entrepreneurs, technology and innovation – especially in our own backyard,” says Danielle Leitch, Executive Vice President of MoreVisibility.
