Well known internet newspaper Huffington Post recently approached StartUp America/StartUp Florida for a list of local startups they could cover during their time here in Tampa for the 2012 Republican National Convention.

All of these ventures will shine in the Huffington Post Spotlight, as they will be invited to an exclusive Expo & special Huffington Post Oasis afterward that is sure to be packed with bloggers, journalists, and other members of the media. So keep your eyes and ears peeled. Follow @HuffPostLive & keep checking their website for updates.
