The Wave helped 180byTwo grow our company to new and amazing heights. With the guidance and support from the Wave team, mentor network, and community, we were able to build a great company, grow in Tampa, and then maximize our exit opportunity.

We have grown 10x in the time we have been connected with Tampa Bay Wave and I personally look forward to giving back to the next class of up and coming tech founders in the area!

The Tampa Bay Wave has been an important part of the Rxlive team since the very beginning. The Wave’s post accelerator resources – in particular the ongoing engagement with an excellent mentor network – has been extremely helpful. Our involvement with the Wave continues to pay dividends in terms of access to capital, exposure and insight.

Mark Engelen
Co-Founder & CEO, RXLive
Trulli

The Wave presented the best opportunity for SPHER to enhance several useful skills including capital investment communications, networking, and sharpening our vision towards growth. The strong commitment from staff, mentors, and community set the Wave apart from every other Accelerator we looked at joining. We are deeply grateful for the guidance and ongoing contributions to our success.

Moving to a new town with a family comes with its own challenges. The team at Tampa Bay Wave not only provided a founational network, but also provided opportunities for us to raise our profile. All the while considering who I was as a person not just a startup CEO.
