Tampa Bay Wave turns focus to later-stage startups


    Tampa Bay Wave, a Tampa nonprofit that services and houses growing startup companies, is starting a post-accelerator program for technology companies with proven traction in the marketplace.

    The new program was prompted by increased demand, a release from Wave said. The move comes as Tampa Bay economic development, government and civic leaders work to expand the technology sector, along with the high-skill, high-wage jobs that often come with tech companies. It’s a sign that Tampa Bay’s technology community is growing up.
