Believe it! UrbanTech accelerator program attracts global attention for Tampa


Tampa has a shot at becoming the main technology hub for the southeastern United States, predicts Andrew Ackerman, Managing Director of Dreamit, a top-10 ranked global accelerator and venture capital firm in New York City.

“When you look at the whole Southeast, …  What is the tech hub?” asks Ackerman, who visited the Tampa Bay Area in June to recruit businesses for Dreamit’s new UrbanTech accelerator program. “There is no undisputed leader. Tampa really has the opportunity to be that leader.”
