OUR EVENTS

As a non-profit organization, TechStart hosts multiple events to raise money for the next generation of creators.

We host 2 events for fundraisers: Grand Prix Yacht Club and Tech Jam.
We attend multiple events as beneficiaries.
Most importantly we also host Demo Days to show off the kids work and show the sponsors their progress.

Grand Prix Yacht Club

We host a party on a yacht to watch the St. Pete Grand Prix. While you party on a yacht, 50 kids get a backstage tour of with the engineers, drivers, and mechanics.

Tech Jam

Tech Jam is an opportunity for the geeks to become rockstars! Local tech companies create a band from at least 50% of their employees, and battle it out for the best company band in Tampa Bay.
