Elevate, Inc. works with entrepreneurs all around the Tampa Bay area. This year, the team is proud to be a media sponsor of TiEcon Florida. As a new charter member, Elevate, Inc. President, Aakash Patel is excited to be a sponsor of this year’s event, “Entrepreneurship is a vital part of the Tampa Bay community. We enjoy the work we do with startups and small businesses, and look forward to supporting TIE Tampa Bay at TiEcon Florida and the business that take part in this great event”, says Patel.
As one of the newest chapters of the TiE Global ecosystem, TIE Tampa Bay is a non-profit volunteer-led organization that fosters entrepreneurship through mentoring, networking, educating and investing in the Tampa Bay area. Entrepreneurs at every stage of business growth are able to gain first-hand knowledge from the wisdom of experienced entrepreneurs. Taking place on February 16th, TiEcon Florida is a full-day annual event that brings leaders and entrepreneurs together, along with featured speakers, presenters and pitch contest.
In addition to speakers and presenters, startups are able to participate in the Startup Pitch Competition. The competition gives eight startups a chance to gain visibility to the TIE Tampa Bay’s global network as well as showcase their venture to TiEcon Florida attendees. Once submitted, the top three startups are determined by a distinguished panel of judges. These three startups are given the opportunity to pitch for funding at the TiE Tampa Angel Forum, recognition in a special TiEcon Florida 2019 post-event press release, as well as an opportunity to have their elevator pitch shared with the TiE Global Angels.
