In December 2023, four marine scientists will row 3000 miles unsupported across the Atlantic Ocean. This all-women team, Salty Science, has strong ties to our local community. Most of them have either studied at or now teach at the University of South Florida. If you visited the Tall Ships St. Pete event or the recent Innovation District Tech X-change you have seen their amazing vessel. The team's goal is to support charities focused on marine conservation education - providing educational opportunities and hands-on experience.
Keep an eye out - you might get the opportunity to see them in and around Tampa Bay as they train for their trip. If you are interested in learning more - including how to have your name or that of your organization on their vessel check out their website: SaltyScience.

Last week St. Pete Innovation District hosted its 6th State of Science and Innovation. This event highlights innovators who are doing creative, thought-provoking, and impactful work. This is always a favorite event of the year and once again the event didn't disappoint.
The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida name Alison Barlow - Executive Director of the St. Petersburg Innovation District - as one of their 2024 Woman of Distinction.
For entrepreneurs, this network of support organizations can be challenging to navigate. The hope is that this map helps direct entrepreneurs to the best possible resources.
