Since 2013, Charter Members of TiE Tampa Bay have been banding together in small groups and actively, but silently, investing sizeable early-stage funds in various startups across Florida (see logo chart for some of the companies funded by TiE Tampa Bay’s Charter Members. Therefore, TiE Tampa Bay Angel Fund is the natural evolution of such early initiatives, and a wider manifestation of appetite for investing in such an asset class. Through TTBAF, a coordinated effort is being made by such investors, to be further strengthened by leveraging TiE’s global network of angel investors. Thus TiE Tampa Bay Angel Fund hopes to create greater value for entrepreneurs in the region with its impact investments.
