The University of South Florida has unveiled a new, $42 million research center designed to help advance the Tampa Bay region’s growing startup industry.
Located at the USF Research Park on the Tampa campus, the three-story, 120,000-square-foot building features laboratory facilities, as well as office and meeting spaces. Research Park is home to more than 65 companies and dozens of additional student led startups.
“It will serve as a catalyst for bringing together leading researchers, entrepreneurs, financial investors and corporations at an ideal time for USF and the Tampa Bay region’s rapidly expanding innovation economy,” said USF President Rhea Law.
