Join the Tampa Innovation Partnership

“People don’t need to be managed, they need to be unleashed.”


The Tampa Innovation Parntership strives to unleash the full potential of the Uptown community. We work collaboratively with people and businesses to create a thriving and magnetic district. And our vision is to transform this transient area into a destination, rather than just a thoroughfare to the university, entertainment venues or hospitals.

Our success depends on your involvement. Together, we can reimagine Uptown into a live, work, play district.
