Please join us and the greater Tampa Bay community as we celebrate the public opening of the FirstWaVE Venture Center. We have extended this invite to anyone & everyone - come one, come all.

If you are a local tech entrepreneur, this is one great way to meet many like-minded people who can help you with your venture and/or find some extra encouragement.  Plus, with so many of our community supporters planning to come, you are likely to find new users, customers, interns, etc.

Not a tech entrepreneur? That's ok. The FirstWaVE Venture Center is a great place to find talent, inspiration, advice, etc. And you'll love learning about all the innovative tech companies being built & launched right here in your own backyard.

There is something for everyone!

    I saw meters everywhere around the building. How long are those meters for? In NYC they are like 15 minutes..
