What We're Connecting


Community Framework

The rising tide lifts all boats. That’s the Synapse mantra and our innovative community is strong because we truly support each other.

We celebrate wins, inspire collaboration, and help create impactful connections. We also give freely to help others succeed because when one does well, we all benefit.

Innovation is a team sport. That’s why Synapse focuses on building a hub that fosters relationships between the key innovation partners. These include entrepreneurs, investors, entrepreneurial support organizations, innovation enablers, talent, government, educational institutions, and corporations.

Visionaries & Innovators

Synapse is the statewide connector of Florida’s innovation community, creating opportunities for entrepreneurs, investors, and talent to find what they need and share what they have.

Through our annual events, we invite leaders from all industries, backgrounds and careers together to showcase their unique solutions, build connections, and demonstrate thought leadership. These events foster relationships where talent is hired, funding is secured, new customers are acquired, investments are made, and lives are changed.

Synapse’s vision is to bring together Florida’s innovators to showcase our state’s incredible talent, technologies, products, and services that are making an impact. We were founded as a non-profit by a group of like-minded individuals who continue to put our passion for innovation at the forefront of everything we do.

Synapse is elevating Florida’s profile as a global innovation leader by connecting people so they can inspire, energize, and impact the world.
