Tampa Bay Wave’s fall cohort is the ‘most diverse yet’

The Tampa Bay Wave fall accelerator cohort is back, with nine of the most promising startups in the Tampa Bay ecosystem ready to learn and grow.

“This cohort may be our most diverse in terms of the wide range of problems they are solving,” accelerator director Richard Heruska said in a statement. “From a company re-engineering the modern bra to a fintech company that recently launched a successful pilot at a national hotel chain, to a 3D printed cast company, this cohort brings a group of visionary founders with a common purpose of transforming their industries.”

The startups are also owned by a mix of veterans, women and Latinx founders. The nine companies are:

  • Tampa-based digital health company E-Cover Global
  • Monticello-based medical device company Exiom
  • Tampa-based Fruutfull, which is reinventing the back band on bras
  • Tampa-based health tech and logistics company MedZoomer
  • Fort Myers-based marketing tech company Nickelytics
  • Tampa-based fintech firm OmPay
  • Tampa-based consumer tech company RentIt
  • Tampa-based, marketing tech firm Reptrics
  • St. Petersburg-based fintech firm SoleVentures

The companies will take part in a 90-day program and will receive mentoring, pitch coaching and introductions to investment opportunities. As usual, the program will culminate in a Demo Day where each founder will pitch to a room of potential investors. This year, Demo Day will be at Synapse Summit in February 2020.
