Tampa Bay Ventures is committed to the creation of a vibrant and internationally recognized startup ecosystem in the Tampa Bay region

We write the first professional seed check into promising startups led by great entrepreneurs. In addition to providing capital, we support the companies in our portfolio with strategic guidance, and help them strengthen their relationships within the community.

We are led by a team which has extensive experience, with broad backgrounds as founders, angel investors, and VCs. As operators, we understand the incredible determination required to create a company and lead it to a successful exit.

Our first fund is a $20 million seed fund, which will invest in 20 companies over the next five years.
