Groundswell Startups, the largest tech incubator in the southeast, is sending a strong signal to city leaders everywhere that increasing access to world-class resources and seasoned mentors builds better communities. Groundswell hosted a ribbon cutting for a first-of-its-kind prototype laboratory on May 18. The lab is made possible by a $500,000 grant from Brevard County Commissioners supporting the not-for-profit incubator. All prototyping equipment will be accessible to area residents and companies in Brevard County.
The largest high tech startup incubator in the southeast just expanded – again. Productivity hums within the deep purple, blue, red and black graffiti-tagged walls of Groundswell Startup’s brand new prototype lab as the last of the new additive manufacturing machines are wheeled in and unboxed on Irwin Street. What was once an indoor skatepark, in an underserved district of Downtown Melbourne, Florida, is now home to more and more startup founders making headlines in Tech Crunch and Forbes and closing deals with seasoned and accredited investors across states like Florida, Georgia, California, Texas and Maryland.
