Tech Runway, billed as a new model for entrepreneurship in South Florida, will open Friday with five tenants at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

The first tenants are a company that simplifies shopping and shipping outside the country, a business that designed comfortable high-heeled shoes for women, a long-term care consultant, an LED light company and a mobile app for charitable giving.

“We were looking for a diverse portfolio of companies,” said Kimberly Gramm, chief executive of Tech Runway and director of FAU’s Adams Center for Entrepreneurship.
