A message from the Chair


I believe every CEO and company out there will tell you that innovation is at the top of their priority list. Innovation is needed to survive and thrive in the world today. And I can’t think of a better way to drive a culture of innovation in your own organization, while also supporting the local technology and business ecosystem, than by supporting and partnering with Tampa Bay Wave and the impressive early stage companies the Wave supports.
