Since 2021, Embarc Collective has partnered with TiE Tampa Bay, the local chapter of TiE Global, a nonprofit organization devoted to entrepreneurs in the Greater Tampa Bay area. Supported by Embarc Collective’s commitment to serving Florida’s most driven and focused entrepreneurs, this collaboration offers invaluable opportunities for our member community.

Today, we are furthering the partnership between Embarc Collective and TiE Tampa Bay with new and exclusive access for Embarc Collective member startups to TiE Tampa Bay’s entrepreneur and investor network. Embarc Collective members will get invitations to TiE Tampa Bay’s schedule of entrepreneurship-focused events and opportunities to present to TiE members and TiE’s investor network. TiE Tampa Bay members can consider investing in Embarc Collective startups. If a member startup of Embarc Collective undergoes due diligence, Embarc Collective will cover TiE Tampa Bay’s associated administrative costs.

The partnership with TiE Tampa Bay aims to facilitate the growth trajectories of local startups, contributing to the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Tampa Bay as an increasingly favorable destination for building a business.
