In 2008, Tampa Bay WaVe, was created “by entrepreneur, for entrepreneur.” This local tech community has relied on volunteers with little budget. Since inception, Tampa Bay WaVe has brought $14.2 million into the local marketplace. The goal is to help startups launch and grow with mentorship and feedback from members.
