TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tampa Bay Wave, the startup accelerator in the Southeast US, officially opened its newest office at Thrive DTSP in St. Petersburg, Florida. The March 20th ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by several influential figures, including US Representative Kathy Castor, St. Petersburg City Council Member Lisset Hanewicz, and leaders from the St. Pete EDC, Pinellas County EDC and several others.

Thrive DTSP is a modern, collaborative office space that provides a variety of work environments for diverse businesses of all sizes and is located in the heart of downtown St. Petersburg.

Tampa Bay Wave is a nonprofit, zero equity accelerator led by seasoned professionals (many of whom have been entrepreneurs themselves) who help other entrepreneurs get access to the resources, expertise, and capital they need to grow successful technology-based companies. Since its official establishment in February 2011, Tampa Bay Wave has supported nearly 500 tech startups thanks to funding from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), in addition to support from economic development partners such as Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa and its many corporate and individual financial supporters.

The addition of the St. Petersburg office, located in the vibrant Thrive DTSP community, expands Tampa Bay Wave’s reach and impact, providing more opportunities for entrepreneurs, including existing Thrive members, to get the support they need to launch and grow their companies. Earlier this year, Tampa Bay Wave also held a grand opening marking their 10 year anniversary and brand new corporate headquarters located on Kennedy Boulevard in downtown Tampa. With both offices officially established, Tampa Bay Wave will continue fostering the growth of a thriving startup community in the Tampa Bay region and accelerating Florida’s innovation economy overall.
