Tampa Bay Wave, a nonprofit accelerator for startups, has announced a strategic collaboration with the University of South Florida, funded by a grant from the United States Economic Development Administration, to launch its HealthTech|X Accelerator program.
This initiative, scheduled to launch in mid-2024, will have a focus on healthtech startups.
“Thanks to the invaluable support from the EDA, coupled with collaborators like USF, we are able to combine our strengths and resources to empower healthtech startups and enhance innovation in our welcoming Florida ecosystem,” said Linda Olson, chief executive officer of Tampa Bay Wave. “This partnership solidifies our dedication to supporting diverse entrepreneurs and building a thriving tech community in the region.”
The HealthTech|X Accelerator will use USF Health’s Center for Medical Learning and Simulation and the WAVE Venture Center as its primary venues for in-person programming, events and company pitches.
