Fusion Pointe advances Southwest Florida’s innovation economy by connecting entrepreneurs with experienced mentors, who will help them build their high-tech startups into investor-ready ventures and connect them with the right funders at the appropriate time.
Fusion Pointe will create additional opportunities in the local economic development community by becoming a buzzing hub of venture development, where entrepreneurs will get the knowledge, connections and potential sources of capital they need to succeed, all under one organization.
