What They Say


Tampa Bay Wave has been a refreshing and resourceful community that thrives in helping its entrepreneurs grow their companies while enriching their knowledge. Wave has helped GuestBox establish a strong voice in the hospitality and the entrepreneurship community.

Shuchi Vyas
Founder & CEO, Guestbox

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.

Ben Goldman
Founder, 180byTwo

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.

Vikas Bhatia
CEO, JustProtect

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.

Raymond Ribble
Founder & CEO, SPHER

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!
