BetterBoo

University of Tampa senior Nick Chmura turned his personal quest to be a better gift-giver into a profitable business with BetterBoo, a web-based application that uses Facebook and Amazon to help users find and buy gifts. Launched in 2011, the start-up has gotten $40,000 in seed funding.
