Greetings!

StarterStudio is a robust entrepreneurial community for tech-enabled startups and other innovators that are adding fuel to Florida’s growing technology economy. We know that each Starter (that’s what we call them) and venture is different, so we have tons of events and programs, two accelerators (one with direct funding built-in), three (and counting) collaborative work spaces, and bushels of partners, mentors, and supporters of our community that are creating an ecosystem like no other.
