Tampa Bay Waves Leadership Panel on Diversity – An Economic Imperative

Entrepreneurial diversity is not only the right thing to do. It’s an economic imperative, according to a leadership panel at the launch of Tampa Bay Wave’s TechDiversity Accelerator.


The panel was the centerpiece of an hour long virtual kickoff for the accelerator program. Fifteen tech companies from around the United States and Latin America, including two from the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, will take part in the 2020 TechDiversity Accelerator cohort, sponsored by the Nielsen Foundation.

“I’m happy that Tampa can not only connect these companies with the resources they need to grow, but I’m also proud that our city can help shine a light on the incredible technologies they’ve developed,” said Tampa Mayor Jane Castor in welcoming the cohort. “Innovative companies like these are keeping our city on the cutting edge, driving us forward toward an even brighter future.”
