Tampa accelerator, Florida investment group establish joint venture


    Israeli tech companies participating in the Florida-Israel Business Accelerator could have a better chance to draw local investment backing, under a joint venture between the accelerator and Florida Funders.

    FIBA companies will be featured in a designated portal on the Florida Funders website, giving accredited investors an opportunity to provide financial support to the firms, said Marc Blumenthal, general partner of Florida Funders.
