Tampa Bay Wave, a startup accelerator in Tampa, is moving its offices into a new downtown location, across the street from its current location.
This new location will better accommodate the organization’s expanding programs and growing membership, according to a statement.
The move is to accommodate the increased demand on Wave membership, and in-person programming and services, the statement said.
“As our accelerator programs continue to grow, as well as our CORE membership, it has become increasingly clear that we either needed to make some significant changes to our current location, or find a new location, to better support all our programs and services,” said, Linda Olson, chief executive officer and founder of Tampa Bay Wave. “With our new location, we will now have the ideal footprint to meet the demand of more startups seeking out our programs and hopefully the launch of new programs as well.”
Located at 500 E. Kennedy Blvd, in Tampa, since June 2015, the new office is located directly across the street at 501 E. Kennedy Blvd. Plans for an official grand opening celebration will be announced later this year.
To date, Tampa Bay Wave has supported 434 startups who collectively have raised over $550 million and created nearly 4,000 jobs, making Wave one of the critical economic drivers for the region and the state of Florida.
