New Synapse challenges will focus on Tampa Bay nonprofits


    Synapse Florida and SunTrust Foundation have teamed up to help out two local nonprofits and an Orlando company better their organizations with a little help from the community.

    Tampa Bay-based Synapse has held multiple Synapse Challenges, which work with a business or organization to solve a specific problem through crowdsourcing solutions from the community. The organization is three tiers: Synapse Summit, which is held in Amalie Arena every year and brings the Tampa Bay innovation community under one roof; Synapse Connect, which is an online platform that allows innovators to easily connect with needed resources to speed up success; and the Synapse Challenges.
