Our Mission

StarterStudio is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) that works with partners throughout Central Florida to strengthen the tech startup ecosystem and to elevate the region in the eyes of investors, educating them about the advantages of investing locally in tech startup companies. The combination of educational programming, industry-specific and startup-specific mentoring, and seed funding makes StarterStudio a unique and powerful asset to the economic development of the region. It is only through support of others — including local government, academic institutions, corporate sponsors, and individual donors — that StarterStudio's important mission is fulfilled.


At StarterStudio, we build founders. Our programs equip you with business competencies and soft skills essential to succeed in any venture. From the first spark of an idea, we empower people to discover their potential, take risks, test ideas, and take action.
