Embarc Collective

Mosaic Partnering with Tampa Bay Innovation Hub

March 19, 2021

Mosaic is dedicated to acting responsibly everywhere we operate, and with our global headquarters in Tampa, Florida, giving back to this community is an important part of our efforts. Mosaic is proud to announce a new 5-year partnership and a $1.5 million grant to join the Founders Circle of Embarc Collective – an innovation hub dedicated to supporting and scaling tech startup companies in Tampa Bay.  Embarc was founded by Jeff Vinik, the owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

While Tampa Bay continues to attract new residents every year, it’s seldom perceived as a lucrative location for tech startups. Embarc Collective helps recruit, retain, and develop startups in their efforts to build bold, scalable, thriving companies. Offering a team of executive advisors and function-specific experts to deliver individualized and quality support, Embarc helps foster innovative growth in Tampa Bay.  

Building a network of global advisors is key to scaling any successful startup. Embarc Collective brings together influential business leaders to help advise and mentor member organizations. 

“Giving back to the communities in which we operate is a cornerstone of our business,” said Ben Pratt, SVP – Government and Public Affairs, who serves on the Embarc board of directors. “As a large employer in Tampa Bay whose employees live and work in this community, we have a responsibility to support the success of the region through strong workforce development and a thriving, innovative economy.”
