The TekFight Entrepreneurship Tournament 2012 is the conference with a Dojo philosophy focused on technology, innovation, thought leadership, and access to resources.
Tournament Rounds focus on key entrepreneurial topics with policy, funding, and innovation leaders. Upon registration and acceptance to the Dojo each participant will receive a white belt and will have the ability to “belt up” as they take part in the discussions and attend rounds.
TekFight has a gamification element; participants who are highly involved via social media streams or onsite as key contributors gain access to special sessions and resources during the day. E.g. a one on one with a high profile thought leader or angel. Individuals are encouraged to participate via these streams in anticipation of the Tournament to belt up faster.
If you are an entrepreneur, a coder, a professional, an angel, or anything in between, you are a #TekFighter. To be part of TekFight is to be part of a movement that is changing the way the entrepreneurial ecosystem is built in Miami.
