    Join a New Community for StartUps

    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.

    Come join us for the next StartUp Xchange. Upcoming and past events are listed on this site.
