2020 Synapse Converge Highlights
Synapse Converge: Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) Edition was intentionally designed to empower and inspire entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey. Attendance was FREE for all, thanks to the support of Truist! Throughout the week, Florida’s talent converged online – bringing you the best of our state’s entrepreneurs, educators, ESOs and community leaders. Synapse Converge: GEW Edition featured two programming tracks each day: the Startup Toolkit and Entrepreneur Leadership Tracks.
Synapse Converge: GEW Edition was packed with three full days of informative sessions all for you, by you. From Startup Toolkits, Entrepreneurship Leadership, to dynamic panel discussions, skills building and trend-spotting – we covered a lot of ground throughout 52 different sessions.
You can still relive and reuse all of the Startup Toolkit sessions for each step along your journey.

“Supporting the Synapse Innovation Summit is our latest effort to allow ourselves to not only be an accounting and advisory firm, but disruptors in our own right.”
“We got a lot of great connections for our company, Monikl, from exhibiting at synapse. We met both potential investors as well as potential clients. It was a lot of fun, and we hope to be back next year!”
“Usually the best connections are made at the bar after an event. At Synapse, those connections happen during the event.”
“This Innovation Summit is really bringing everyone together and we are able to put a face to the names of all the amazing companies and thought leaders we are lucky to have in Tampa.”
