Join us as we celebrate innovation throughout Tampa Bay!
Tampa Bay Innovation Week is a celebration of the Greater Tampa Bay area’s tech and innovation ecosystem during the week of Synapse Summit, Feb 12th-18th. Your business or organization is encouraged to host events that highlight their place in the region’s innovation ecosystem. Criteria for these events are intentionally ambiguous to leave room for creativity and inclusivity – examples include: art shows, technology activations, unique dining experiences, cocktail parties, pitch competitions, ribbon cuttings, and events we haven’t even thought of yet!
Thousands of leaders, business owners, investors, etc. will be traveling to Synapse Summit during this week. TBIW provides an opportunity for the Tampa Bay innovation community to highlight what we do best: celebrating, discovering, and engaging with one another. So tap into this unique opportunity for exposure as we grow the community together!
