After working with 100’s of technology start-ups and innovators, we at the Tampa Bay Innovation Center, formerly STAR TEC, realized the Tampa Bay area needed an informal program that would link entrepreneurs, talent in transition, scientists, funders, innovators, technology professionals and engineers – the people who want to make connections in the Tampa Bay innovation marketplace and move their ideas forward.
This program, StartUp Xchange, will help innovators and entrepreneurs meet and learn from each other and from the resource people whose experience can help further their idea/start-up company. We hope this will result in more startup companies that are formed/nurtured and become success stories for the Tampa Bay region.
Mark your calendar! August's StartUp Xchange will be Wednesday, August 22nd, 5 - 7 p.m. at Wood Fired Pizza in Tampa.
StartUp Xchange is an informal monthly gathering of entrepreneurs, innovators and Innovation Center mentors. Each month, Innovation Center mentors are available to share their advice and experience and answer questions to help you navigate your entrepreneurial journey. Come on by buy a drink, have a seat and join the conversation!
This month's mentors are:
◦Mike Eitler, Business Consulting, Group125 LLC
◦Chris Paradies, IP Attorney, Fowler White & Boggs
◦Travis Milks, Investor, Stonehenge Growth Capital
This is for entrepreneurs and startups to access the expertise of the Tampa Bay Innovation Center's mentors and ask their questions for starting or launching their venture.
All sales activities will be strongly discouraged. Networking opportunities are encouraged at our monthly TECH Talk series. Please visit www.tbinnovates.com for more information.
StartUp Xchange is presented by the Tampa Bay Innovation Center and sponsored by the eHub sponsors.
