Groundswell incubator celebrates opening in Melbourne


Walking through a repurposed indoor skate park, Jenna Buehler led Groundswell tour visitors across an industrial-themed floor plan of shipping-container offices, communal conference rooms, and shared workspaces intended to create an innovative ecosystem for high-tech entrepreneurs.

“The mission at Groundswell is to strengthen the pipeline to capital by connecting people with mentors and resources,” Buehler, co-founder and chief executive officer, told tour attendees.

“The Space Coast has never seen anything like this before. So to develop something that physically represents the initiative itself was a challenge — and one we’re excited to embrace,” Buehler said.
