Veteran-owned Business Marketplace at Synapse Summit

Veteran entrepreneurs market their diverse businesses at Synapse Summit Social at Sofwerx

Amalie Arena is again the place to be for the 2019 Synapse Summit on January 23 and 24, 2019. After all that entrepreneurial mojo to get your business engines humming, join us at Sofwerx for the Synapse Social Wednesday night, January 23 from 5:30 - 7:30 pm. Sofwerx staff will be on hand to describe a variety of projects at their exceptional facility, and Action Zone will host a Veteran-owned business marketplace.

"The purpose of the marketplace," says Valerie Lavin, Action Zone, Outreach Director, "is to highlight Veteran entrepreneurs and the diversity of business concepts being developed by them in the Tampa Bay region. It provides consumers an opportunity to get to know our Veteran business owners in the community and purchase their products and services."

Sofwerx has been a consistent supporter of Veteran entrepreneurs, having hosted events, classes and socials at their Ybor City facility over the last several years.

Veteran-owned businesses interested in participating at the Sofwerx Synapse Social and Action Zone VOB Marketplace may contact Valerie Lavin at or register online. The cost is $25 for each table reserved. Space is limited and is first-come first served.
