Wave Hall of Fame Awards – Six Recipients Representing $200 Million of Business Value Creation in Tampa Bay

September 15, 2021

Wave Hall of Fame Awards 2021-09

This week, Wave celebrated the first recipients of the Wave Hall of Fame Awards. Wave established these awards in 2021 in order to recognize the entrepreneurs who are helping to grow the Tampa Bay tech startup ecosystem by building high-growth tech businesses that are achieving success and making an impact on Tampa Bay.

The award criteria includes companies who have achieved a major business milestone (such as a major investment round) and the founders must also be committed to helping “pay it forward” to the next generation of entrepreneurs and startups through mentoring, investing, and more.

The six honorees recognized last night represent $200 Million worth of business value creation (and all of whom are headquartered Tampa Bay):

Special thanks to City of Tampa Mayor Jane Castor and University of South Florida Muma College of Business Dean Moez Limayem who joined us to celebrate these incredible entrepreneurs!
