University of Tampa opens applications for new startups


    The University of Tampa has already helped over 60 companies in the Tampa Bay ecosystem and now officials are looking for 18 more.

    Applications for the Spartan Incubator are now open until Aug. 1; it is open to anyone with an early, most likely pre-revenue business in Tampa Bay. Nine spots will be in residence and nine are off-site, with the same access to resources as the in-residence businesses. Some of those resources include access to professors for advice, weekly meetings and participation in an expo.
