Startup Capital is a Tallahassee interview series and podcast focused on spotlighting and promoting the city’s growing entrepreneurial ecosystem. We’ve teamed up with Startup Southerner to bring the stories and lessons of Tallahassee entrepreneurship to you.
For Episode Two of Season Two, we decided to bring in a guest who knows Tallahassee’s community better than anyone: Mayor Andrew Gillum. While Gillum recently announced a run for Florida Governor, that hasn’t stopped him from advocating for Tallahassee startups in the meantime.
Most recently, Gillum began a community-wide initiative called the Tallahassee Innovation Partnership (TIP). Spearheaded by Gillum’s office, the TIP seeks to connect the city’s different institutions in government and higher education with innovative new businesses in town.
