Rounding the Bend

We’re on the second-to-last day of Startup Week. Entrepreneurs are starting to implement ideas, sponsors are restocking snacks and drinks, volunteers are catching up on their to-do lists, I haven’t showered in four days (that’s a lie… or is it?) The atmosphere is reaching a strange combination of exhaustion and excitement, ready to hit that […]

Day One Wrap-up

Startup Week has begun! And we started at the very beginning (a very good place to start). Before any of the current startup community popped up in Tampa, in fact, before much of the current city infrastructure was put into place, there was Henry Plant and Vicente Ybor, the original Tampa entrepreneurs. Rodney Kite-Powell talked […]
