Founder/Executive Director, Tampa Bay WaVE, Inc.
Join us for a conversation about the role start-up tech companies are playing in downtown Tampa's economic future.
Tampa Bay WaVE, together with the University of Tampa and other like-minded local organizations are making a significant impact on the region’s economic future with plans to make Downtown Tampa the heart and soul of the area’s high tech entrepreneurial community.
With recent stories like Tampa-based startup Wufoo.com being acquired for $35 million earlier this year, efforts are underway to generate more stories like this for the Bay area.
Tampa Bay WaVE's goal to build a vibrant local ecosystem that can support the development and launch of 50 new technology ventures a year, along with their new shared collaborative space located in Downtown Tampa, will not only have a lasting impact on the region’s economic future, but can also have a significant impact on the retail foot traffic and residential goals for the city.
