The Show Stopper Awards were given to three teams who most effectively and creatively displayed their companies in the exhibit hall setting.

Upon arrival, teams were informed that they would be competing in an event called "Pitch the Investor" and the top three teams would advance to "Tiger Tank." In the first event, teams were given two minutes to pitch their idea to the investor. Each investor had the option to invest or not invest in the team, and at differing financial denominations. From the "Pitch the Investor" event, the top three teams with the highest investment advanced into the "Tiger Tank." The three teams were given ten minutes to pitch to a panel of four judges. The judges deliberated following all three presentations and announced a winner. The "Tiger Tank" winner received $1,000 and the three teams that advanced from "Pitch the Investor" were awarded $500 each.
