What is upsurge florida?

UPSURGE FLORIDA is an effort, or more like a movement, being led by two of Central Florida's best-known, non-profit tech accelerators who joined forces to help tech-investment curious Floridians learn about, connect to, and engage with the early stage investing activity in the region's most promising tech startups. Thanks to a federal grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (US EDA), along with corporate partners like the Vinik Family Foundation, Kirenaga Partners, and Tampa Electric.  UPSURGE FLORIDA is a three-year project designed to help activate a new wave of capital and innovation across Central Florida...from Florida's Space Coast to the Gulf Coast, and all points in between!
