Statewide coalition Launch Florida introduces itself today in Tampa to help propel startup economy


In the spirit of boosting Florida’s still-juvenile support system for entrepreneurs and innovation, a new statewide group called Launch Florida has been launched to encourage better coordination and more networking opportunities.

The organization will be introduced today in Tampa during Tampa Bay’s Startup Week of events celebrating this region’s business startups and entrepreneurs.

Consider it one more piece of the “entrepreneurial ecosystem” that Tampa Bay and Florida are trying to knit together into a coherent and muscular support system.
