I would ask you to seriously consider joining us. It will be a great way to get exposure for your ventures to a whole new audience of downtown Tampa professionals & politicians.

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.
