usf-connect-logo-2013-web-300x63 USF Connect has been an event sponsor since ROBOTICON started four years ago, and we’re pleased to welcome them back again this year, to mark our expansion into the USF Sun Dome with our biggest event yet!

USF CONNECT is the business and economic development initiative of the University of South Florida (USF) that provides support for technology start-ups and serves as the point of entry for companies looking to do business with USF.  USF Connect:

  • Drives economic development through several programs including Tampa Bay Technology Incubator (TBTI), Student Innovation Incubator (SII), and the Florida High Tech Corridor Council’s (The Corridor) Matching Grants Research Program
  • Unites technology and talent with businesses throughout a 23 county region, providing access to top-tier research, faculty, students, inventors, local organizations, economic development councils, supporting industry and capital funding sources
  • Facilitates the needs of Tampa Bay’s technology and bio/life sciences entrepreneurs throughout the business life cycle by providing professional amenities and resources for successful business development and technology commercialization

Thank you, USF Connect, for your ongoing support of Tampa Bay’s next generation of science and technology leaders!
