UPSURGE Florida is an initiative 

Tampa Bay Wave is an entrepreneurial hub where tech companies come to build, launch and grow their businesses. We believe in empowering our members to turn innovation into breakout successes. More than just an accelerator, more than just coworking, Tampa Bay Wave is a “for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs” innovation community working to make Tampa Bay’s tech ecosystem stronger.

With a long-term owner’s mindset, Kirenaga Partners thoughtfully structures our investments to provide the necessary growth capital to our portfolio companies while delivering capital appreciation and current income to our investors.
