On the heels of the most recent Google Fiber announcement, this week’s Startup Tampa Bay webcast discussed what makes a region attractive to big tech initiatives.
Echoing previous webcasts was the notion that if you want to build a more sustainable tech ecosystem the entrepreneurs have to lead the discussion. Baby Boomer-based #economicdevelopment is no longer a viable strategy for Florida and refocusing our efforts on the infrastructure that attracts and inspires startup founders is the only hope for creating a sustainable tech ecosystem here in Tampa Bay. The #EDI2 program sponsored by @MarkSharpeFL is a start, but everyone unanimously agreed that it is not up to government to make this a success.@MarkSharpeFL ‘s guests this week include: Jordan Raynor from @Citizenvestor Kyle Mathews of @ModMyi Joy Randels of @StartupGrindTB Heather Kenyon of @TBTF
Commissioner @MarkSharpeFL leads a discussion about startups, transportation and changes needed in public policy to help advance the Tampa Bay economy and tech ecosystem.
