POWDER KEG Startup Bowl Pitch Competition

This October, 10 startups from across the country will compete for a $15,000 startup-growth prize package for the first-ever “Startup Bowl” at Lucas Oil Stadium (Where the Super Bowl was held this year).

Part of the inaugural Powder Keg conference, which will draw 500 ambitious founders and creative technologists from across the country to Indianapolis from October 17-19, the “Startup Bowl” will pit founders against each other in a quick-pitch competition judged by accomplished entrepreneurs, including Startup America CEO Scott Case, founder Jonathon Perrelli and partners of Elevate Ventures.

A few of the startups set to compete in the “Startup Bowl” include car rental startup FlightCar, which allows vehicle owners who have parked their cars at the airport to rent them out to other travelers (think Airbnb, but for airport car rentals), drag-and-drop app creator App Press, and Indy-based CoatChex (which recently turned down a $200,000 investment from Mark Cuban on Friday’s season four premiere of ABC’s “Shark Tank”).
