An animated discussion on opportunities to increase access to capital for growing Florida businesses and the potential of new legislation.

TiE Tampa Bay will host Florida's Office of Financial Regulation Commissioner, Russell C. Weigel III, to discuss ‘Funding Florida’s Growth.’ This event will include a high-performance networking reception followed by our special guest speakers and Q & A.

Join Rich Heruska, TiE President, Sara Hand of Spark Growth and TiECon Program Chair, Allie Felix VP of Platform of Embarc Collective, in support of Commissioner Weigel’s ‘Funding Florida’s Growth’ initiative and this very informative and interactive presentation.

The Commissioner and the Office of Financial Regulation (OFR) seek feedback for a legislative initiative to help stimulate the growth of a capital market for the financing of Florida’s small and expanding businesses. This event is the opportunity for your voice to be heard.

Your input is essential, and we encourage you to fill out the Feedback Survey - Office of Financial Regulation: Stimulating the Formation of a Capital Funding Ecosystem before the event.

Also, please feel free to share this survey with those in your community network who may be interested.

The goal is to promote Florida’s economy by creating a self-sustaining, in-state capital market where many newly formed businesses can obtain seed or expansion capital. The desired outcome is to have Florida residents and businesses receive capital from within our state and ultimately remain in Florida and contribute to the state’s economy.

This enriching event will be held on August 12, 2021, from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm at the Embarc Collective Center - 802 E. Whiting, Tampa, FL 33602. Refreshments will be served.

We look forward to collaborating with you and hearing your voice in this very important matter.

TiE Tampa, Embarc Collective, and Spark Growth

Thank you, Shannon Procise of Business Acceleration Network, for your help in this effort.
