This is the regional affiliate of Startup Florida, a state affiliate of Startup America. Startup Spacecoast is for those who have started or are thinking about starting a business as well as those who can mentor or back these companies. The Spacecoast area has some of the deepest per capita technical talent in the US but has not realized its full potential as an entrepreneurial haven. As a founder of several startups and having worked for venture capital funds, I started this group to help foster that ecosystem. From tech to franchise businesses--all are welcome. Everything is game: funding (including crowdfunding), choice of entity, operations, co-sharing, legal issues . . .
