Tampa, Florida -- The University of Tampa is presenting Downtown Debriefing on Nov. 3 from 7:30 - 9 a.m. at Jackson's Bistro called Catch the Tampa Bay Tech Wave.

Dr Rebecca White the James W. Walter Distinguished Chair of Entrepreneurship at U.T. and Linda Olson the founder and executive director of Tampa Bay WaVE Inc. will speak at the Debriefing.

Tampa Bay WaVE, together with the University of Tampa and other like-minded local organizations are making a significant impact on the region's economic culture with plans to make downtown Tampa the heart and soul of the area's high tech entrepreneurial community.

With recent stories like Tampa-based startup Wufoo.com being acquired for $35 million earlier this year, efforts are underway to generate more stories like this for the Bay area.

Tampa Bay WaVE's goal to build a vibrant local ecosystem that can support the development and launch of 50 new technology ventures a year, along with their new shared collaborative space located in downtown Tampa, will not only have a lasting impact on the region's economic future, but can also have a significant impact on the retail foot traffic and residential goals for downtown.

There is a $20 charge for members of the Downtown Partnership and $25 for non members.
