Calling all web developers, designers & entrepreneurs.

What is SuperConf?


SUPERCONF is a conference for makers! The designers, developers and entrepreneurs molding our future. Hosted in sunny Miami (Wynwood to be exact). It's an intimate conference with only 250 tickets, so you'll get a chance to meet everyone; attendees, speakers, founders, and more.

On day one, we open the floor for lightning talks from the community in the morning - then in the afternoon, you'll see founders launch their company for the first time for a chance to win up to $10k in cash + $10k in prizes. We've been fortunate to have founders of companies like CodeSchool, TBH & ShoeFitr pitch at SuperConf. We have a panel of judges decide who takes home the prize, but the audience votes as well.

On day two, you learn from the people who have forged their own path forward; either as developers, designers or even founders on what it takes to bring your craft to the next level.

Agenda Overview:

Day 1

Lightning Talks & Launch Day

In the morning, we're opening the stage to the community, any conference attendee can propose a 10 minute or less talk and as long as there are slots, we'll give you airtime!

Next, we'll have 8 companies expose their products to the world for the first time! In the past we've been the launching platform for companies like CodeSchool, ShoeFitr, LiveNinja, 71lbs and more. We're giving away more than $30k in cash and prizes to 3 companies. The winners will be selected by a panel of VCs, press, experts & for the first time ever an audience vote will count as a judge.

If you'd like more info on prizes, judges, and applications - checkout the launch page OR follow us on twitter.

As a conference attendee you get to see crazy cool tech at the earliest stages and in some cases, get early access before everyone else. Plus you get to decide the winner.
