Synapse Innovation Summit connects technology, innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystems in Florida

Harbor View Advisors attended the Innovation Summit  hosted by Synapse, a Tampa nonprofit focused on growing the region’s culture of tech-driven entrepreneurship. The Synapse Innovation Summit brings together innovators from all industries and stages of development to connect technology, regionally-based innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystems throughout Florida.

Last year the event drew a little more than 600 attendees; this year, over 2,500 entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, college students, military veterans, government officials and business executives attended.

The event featured an immersive exhibit showcasing over 100 of the best and brightest of Florida's tech ecosystem. Breakout Sessions and Expert Insights addressed topics including biotech and health care, defense and cyber security, fintech and blockchain, robotics, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality and business development. There were also opportunities to gain insight via sessions focused on building your business, investing, raising capital, skill building, and more.

Harbor View is committed to supporting the growth of entrepreneurial ecosystems in the state of Florida and applauds Synapse for coordinating such a robust event promoting innovation. We plan on attending in 2019 and look forward to leveraging what we learned and the connections we made in the coming months.
