Federal Leaders Visit the Hub

The Hub and its 17 tenant organizations have had the privilege over the last three months to welcome several current and past Federal Government leaders to the building.  These have included Dr. Richard Spinrad - Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere & NOAA Administrator, and Ms. Heidi Shyu - Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering.

During these visits, the Innovation District discussed the Hub vision and why this creative approach to shared space is a game-changer for small businesses in the maritime and national security sectors.  The tenants also had the opportunity to demonstrate their technology and talk about the untapped potential they see in the Tampa Bay region.
