Who is the Tampa Innovation Alliance
The Tampa Innovation Alliance is a multi-jurisdictional district anchored by globally-recognized institutions who drive economic activity in the area, engaging tens of thousands of students and educators, healthcare workers and patients, and four million tourists annually. Our anchor institutions include: University of South Florida, Busch Gardens, Moffitt Cancer Center, Florida Hospital, RD Management (University Mall). Under new leadership and with institutional support, the Alliance is poised to engage business and community as we lead revitalization and renaissance – building an engaged community recognized as an innovation destination through an inclusive effort drawing from the creative minds of our community.
What is the Mission of the Tampa Innovation Alliance?
Simply put, our mission is to build a place that people want to live, work and play. Our focus is on Transforming, Enriching & Connecting our Alliance area. And our vision is to transform this transient area into a destination, rather than just a thoroughfare to the university, entertainment venues or hospitals. While our cross-sector anchor institutions provide economic and social structure, we recognize that the community’s essence and identity are defined by the people who live here.JOIN NOWLEARN MORE
