What We Do

For the last 8 years, we have been working to build our entrepreneurial community here in Tampa Bay. We do this by running events that give entrepreneurs and thought leaders a platform to work together. These events have provided education, resources, networking, and launchpads for countless startups. As a not for profit organization, we operate for the community, by the community.

Our Mission

To create opportunities and empower thought leaders to succeed and develop Tampa Bay into a national entrepreneurial focal point.

Why We Do It

We came together as a group of people who absolutely love the Startup Community and Tampa Bay. Our team is comprised of a group that has committed their time and energy to this community. Being that we were already doing these events, we decided to create this non-profit to do it all bigger and better! That is why Startup Tampa Bay exists. To take these passions for supporting this community and build on them with an organization that can support our efforts.
