Tampa Bay Inventors Celebrate 30 Years Of Innovation

"Inventors Helping Inventors" is the motto of an organization of inventors in Tampa Bay who have been gathering together to advise and support each other for the past 30 years.

The nonprofit, all volunteer Tampa Bay Inventors Council (TBIC) is open to both professionals and novice inventors who want to network, collaborate and learn how to protect themselves and their inventions. The group meets twice per month for advice and information on topics such as patents, prototyping and marketing opportunities such as crowd funding.  

Members’ inventions include the in10did, a touch typing keyboard with only 10 keys, the Halo Nightlight, which lights up the floor of a room while keeping the rest of the room dark, and the PamiPocket a lightweight cell phone purse.

Their 30th Anniversary celebration will take place October 1 at the EpiCenter at St. Petersburg College. Inventors from across the state will have their innovations on display, ranging from a cat pool to a new bed design. The group’s founder, patent attorney Ron Smith, will be speaking, as well as Kevin Harrington from Shark Tank and "As Seen on TV."

"America has always embraced the inventor or entrepreneur…people who are willing to start a company or build upon an idea," says Wayne Rasanen, president of TBIC. "Tampa is kind of a small town for businesses, so generating more start-ups and entrepreneurial spirit in Tampa Bay is vital to establishing new companies, to building new industries."

MOSI Tampa Hosts STEAM Summit On Innovation

What do science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) have in common? They’re all part of Tampa Bay’s growing reputation as a region that nurtures innovation, and they will all be discussed at an upcoming professional leaders forum.

Hosted by the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI), the forum on October 10 is a first for Tampa Bay and brings together professionals from all industries and across the region.

"The goal is to have a conversation with business leaders in the community about the importance of STEAM education, the opportunities that brings to Tampa, and our challenges as a region as we strive to be an innovative place," says Molly Demeulenaere, VP of development for MOSI.

Panelists include Raul Cuero, PhD., MOSI's 2013 National Hispanic Scientist of the Year. A microbiologist originally from Columbia, Cuero is a national spokesperson for STEAM and innovation who discovered through growing up in poverty that creativity can help bring about a better way of life.

Kerriann Greenlagh, Ph.D., a local organic chemist and University of South Florida graduate will provide an entrepreneur’s perspective of taking her liquid bandaid, KeriCure, from lab to market.

The panel is rounded out by local artpreneur and biologist Jeff Hazelton whose innovations include medical games, animation and imaging technology.

In addition to the panelists, the event is intended be an interactive conversation with involvement from the entire community.

STEAM is a focus of MOSI’s masterplan for 2025, but it has always been an important part of the educational process for the museum.

"As a science center, we have been teaching STEM/STEAM since MOSI opened in the 1950s," says Demeulenaere, adding that many people don’t realize that art is already integrated into STEM initiatives. For example, architecture plays a critical part in building design, as does design as an element in automobile manufacturing.

In bringing the STEAM conversation to the masses, MOSI also hopes to inspire the next generation of our region’s youth to take advantage of careers in STEAM fields. "We want people to know that it’s accessible, that it’s not hard for them to accomplish."

Spectrio Grows, Adds 20 Jobs in Oldsmar

Oldsmar-based audio/video marketing firm Spectrio is growing, adding 20 sales jobs to its 80-member team over the next year and a half. The company is adding sales administrators, sales support staff and telemarketers.

To understand what Spectrio does, consider the pleasant background music heard in hotels, banks, retail establishments and on corporate telephone messaging systems. Spectrio provides the creative energy behind helping to brand companies with appropriate sounds and music.

"We make sure that the content that we’re delivering is top quality," says CEO Aaron Kleinhandler.

Spectrio’s team features technical writers, programmers, professional voice talent, spokespersons, designers and more, all who collectively create audio and video content as well as digital signage and demonstrations for companies throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Founded in Clearwater in 2001 as Audio Messaging Solutions, business partners and friends Mitch Keller and Aaron Kleinhandler joined forces to create a company dedicated to serving the brand needs of other companies. The firm soon acquired other businesses, consolidating products and services to offer supplementary services that complimented their product offerings.

"We view ourselves as a marketing partner. The content we provide helps a company maintain their brand, extend it and reinforce it," says Kleinhandler.

By 2005, the firm had 13 employees in its Clearwater office, soon moving to Oldsmar and growing to 40 by 2013. Spectrio now has more than 80 employees and over 50 contractors.

"We’ve almost outgrown our facilities in Tampa. We are continuing to acquire other businesses and are now starting to expand our sales force," says Kleinhandler.

The company has additionally attracted interest from investors and private equity groups. Spectrio’s growth plan includes opportunities that will allow long-term scalability to the firm.

"We really like the area, and we’ve made a long-term commitment to the Tampa region."

New Interactive Tool Helps High Schools Track Financial Aid Applications

Less than half of high school seniors in Florida complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which helps determine their qualifications for college financial assistance. A new online tool aims to help schools change that, and ultimately increase the number of students who enroll in college.

The Florida FAFSA Finish Line was created by Florida College Access Network (FCAN), a Tampa-based nonprofit whose mission is to improve college and career preparation for Florida students. The tool allows schools, researchers and other educational stakeholders to monitor the number of 12th graders who complete the FAFSA. The data is extracted from the U.S. Department of Education and Florida Department of Education for the 2011 – 2012 and 2012-2013 school years.

"If students don’t have money, they don’t have access to college regardless of their academic preparation. We want to be able to use the data in a more dynamic way and create a platform for other people throughout the state to use and interact with it," says Troy Miller, senior researcher and policy analyst at the FCAN and creator of the tool.

The interactive map is searchable by indicators such as school name, city and county and provides information at the school level such as percentage of low-income students and graduation rate.

The FAFSA is an important tool in the college application process because it alerts students to financial aid available -- both in the form of loans and free Pell grants. A growing population of students in Florida demonstrate financial need (during the 2012-13 school year, 59 percent of K-12 students were eligible for free and reduced lunch), but studies have shown that many don’t fill out the application because they don’t think they will qualify for aid.

The Florida FAFSA Finish Line is intended to be a resource for schools to track and monitor their own progress with helping high school seniors complete the FAFSA. They can also compare themselves with other schools to identify areas where they can improve.

"We want to provide useful, local, targeted data to raise the importance about the FAFSA," says Miller, adding that the data is timely, and taken from the most recent school year (February through June 2013).

Tampa Native Creates Wallet With Slim Design

The Snapback Wallet was designed with minimalists in mind. With space for 10 credit cards, as well as receipts and cash, the wallet is made of stretchy elastic that can be carried on a wrist or in a pocket or purse.

The concept was developed by Nick Augeri, a Tampa native and University of South Florida graduate, who was frustrated with the lack of quality wallets in a slim size that would hold cards, cash and receipts. After Internet and retail searches came up blank, he decided to start sewing. "I had some terrible prototypes at first," laughs Augeri.

The product development involved a great deal of searching for the perfect elastic, as well as enlisting the help of his mother, an experienced seamstress. Once the design was perfected, he found a manufacturer located in Melbourne. All in all, the process took approximately five months from idea to final execution.

"There’s a lot that goes into making a product that I had no idea about," says Augeri. He learned, for instance, that the country of origin has to be on every product, as well as the nuances involved with shipping.

Augeri launched a campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds to make the first products. The campaign recently exceeded the initial $10,000 goal. He plans to launch two new colors if $15,000 is raised by the end of the campaign on September 27.

He contributes social media channels with helping him spread the word, as well as USF marketing professor Bob Pecoraro for giving him the guidance and direction needed to get the business started.

Augeri hopes to eventually turn the company into a full-time job, selling the wallets both online and in retail establishments.

Anago Cleaning Systems Grows, Adds 40+ Jobs in Tampa

Anago Cleaning Systems’ Master Franchise Owners Raul Gonzalez and Omar Fernandez are spurring economic growth in Tampa Bay, creating small business opportunities for entrepreneurs while generating more than 40 jobs.

One of the leading commercial cleaning franchise organizations with over 2,400 business units across the country, Anago has been recognized by the Entrepreneur Magazine as the 10th fastest-growing franchise in 2013 in the United States and by the National Minority Franchising Initiative as the top franchise for minorities.

"We are adding small businesses by virtue of those people who open a cleaning business and are simultaneously adding jobs because the unit franchisees are hiring employees to assist them in running their small business," says VP of Marketing Judy Walker.

Cousins that came from a close-knit family in New York, Gonzalez and Fernandez moved to Florida together and saw a need for growing companies that would cater to the entrepreneurial needs of the Spanish community. Many of Anago’s Florida unit franchisees are from different countries -- entrepreneurs seeking business opportunities but who may face market entry and language barriers.

"They saw a need that people wanted. In a community, people really stick together, and we wanted to become part of that community by reaching out to them and fulfilling their needs," says Trish Carr, regional director of Anago Tampa.

For the past 15 years, Gonzalez and Fernandez have successfully added new franchise units in the area, connecting entrepreneurs with a structured business management system, allowing franchise business owners the freedom to concentrate on their craft while fulfilling the American Dream. The Master Franchiser, Anago Tampa, provides the franchise unit with on-going local contracts, mentorship, marketing and administrative services, effectually connecting families and communities with long-term business and job opportunities.

"We work hand-in-hand with our business owners. We build relationships," says Carr.

Gonzalez and Fernandez have already added seven new franchise units this year and plans to plant up to eight more before the end of 2013.

"I have so much faith and belief in Omar, Raul and Trish. Their success has been excellent through the years, and we expect them to grow exponentially and the economy as well," says Walker.

For more information on unit franchise or career opportunities, visit Anago Tampa online or call Trish Carr at 727.535.8752.

Granex Opens Manufacturing Facility, Adds 50+ Jobs In Tampa

New and emerging stone processing company Granex, Inc. is beginning construction on its new manufacturing facility and will create new jobs for more than 50 new employees. Over the next four months, the company will add crane operators, machine handlers, office administration, marketing specialists and accounting team members.

Granex specializes in processing dimensional stones like granite and marble. By sourcing stone from several different countries and importing them directly into the United States for processing here, it essentially creates a new industry segment for domestic engineering of distinct stones.

"It’s a new kind of industry. This industry will bring the Tampa Bay area onto the world map of manufacturing cities. We will be importing from almost 40 different countries, and we will proudly put Made in USA," says Granex President Raj Emandi.

The opening of the new northeast Tampa manufacturing facility is a part of a $6 million capital investment that will provide a place to process the direct imports, attracting American buyers while presenting a significant cost-savings alternative to purchasing from other countries.

"We are producing huge blocks of granite and marble stone and cutting them in America," says Emandi.

After production, Granex will also begin exporting to other countries including Europe, and Central and South America.

The company is obtaining final permitting for construction of the new facility, will complete construction within four months, and will go straight into production.

Emandi’s goals are to create a wholesome environment for employees by introducing them to the new jobs, offering training, and positioning them for long-term growth with the company's specialized services.

Granex’ growth plans include targeting $8 to $12 million sales within the first two years, expanding the capability and volume of the company and increasing sales, further creating additional job growth.

"Within two years, we will be increasing the capacity of the company by adding a few more machines. We are anticipating to double sales and add more jobs," says Emandi.

Zip Around Town In An Electric Vehicle On Plug In Day

Have you seen or heard about plug-in vehicles but don’t know much about them? Plug In Day will give you an opportunity to learn more and take a test drive to see what the buzz is about.

Plug in Day is a nationwide celebration of cars, trucks and motorcycles that are fueled by electricity (storing all of their energy in batteries) or plug-in hybrids (using batteries as well as a gas engine). Plug in vehicles are less expensive to fuel and maintain, as well as better for the environment compared with those that use only gasoline.

Events will take place at 88 locations across the U.S., with two in the Tampa Bay region: September 28 in Temple Terrace and September 29 in Sarasota. At the national level, events are coordinated by Plug In America, Sierra Club and Electric Auto Association, with activities being coordinated by local partners.  

"Together these events really aim to draw attention to the environmental and economic benefits of the electric vehicle," says Britten Cleveland, conservation organizer for the Sierra Club in Tampa Bay.

The highlight of both events will be ride and drives, encouraging people to bring in their plug in vehicles for others to test drive, and see for themselves how beneficial the cars can be.

Plug in vehicles have a measurable reduction on oil use and air population, providing positive implications for health and the environment.

"It’s all about reducing our dependence on oil and reducing emissions from tail pipes," says Cleveland.

With the theme “Electrify the Island,” the Sarasota event will also feature a sustainability expo, food vendors and music.

The Temple Terrace event will feature green technology organizations, solar companies and other like-minded organizations.

Event partners include Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium, the City of Sarasota, Sarasota County, Tampa Bay Clean Cities Coalition and USF Patel College of Global Sustainability.

CopyPress Grows, Adds 5+ Jobs In Tampa

In the last two years, Tampa-based content creation and marketing firm CopyPress has grown significantly, adding creative writers, artists, designers and videographers to create content and multimedia capabilities for their clients.

After developing a successful product for another company, CEO Dave Snyder spun the prototype out as a “content mill” in 2011, launching CopyPress and pairing clients with creative writers to develop relevant and meaningful content for their project needs. The company has since adapted its model, delivering tailored, fresh content solutions designed to drive traffic for their clients.

"In 2011, we had to look at what we were doing from a business perspective, and we started going towards the realm of higher quality content," says Snyder.

In 2012, the company grew from 5 to 12 in-house employees and 100 contract creative writers, while merging with another group that focused on publishing.

"We started to really re-create what we were doing. When we made a big change to our current model in 2012, we didn’t know if we would be around for the next few months. But with a little bit of foresight and a lot of love -- but also the camaraderie and our culture here -- it really helped build up where we are now where people really hold each other accountable," says Snyder.

Focused on fine-tuning their content marketing and publishing process, the company developed a Content Life Cycle that matched creative writers with publishers, then further matching them with advertisers. This effectively offered advertisers the ability to create memorable, shareable content while offering publishers the ability to reach their demographic.

From 2012 to 2013, CopyPress grew its staff to 57 employees in-house and at least tripled sales in comparison to 2011 and 2012.

"We’ve been able to tap into what Tampa has -- its resources -- and really make the most of it, says Snyder. We train and put them on the path to professional development," says Snyder.

CopyPress plans to launch an open marketplace in 2014, a place where small businesses can go to connect with creatives in order to create the content necessary to grow a specific area of their businesses. The company now has 200 Certified Creatives and plans to grow to 500 over the next 12 months.

WellCare Contributes $1M To Step Up For Students

WellCare Health Plans, Inc. is offering scholarships to improve health and educational opportunities for students in need.

WellCare announced its participation in the Step Up For Students scholarship program, contributing $1 million to help provide K-12 students coming from low-income families or poverty circumstances the opportunity to participate in learning environments tailored to their scholastic needs. Since 2004, WellCare has contributed $9 million for 2,400 students throughout Florida.

"WellCare always has a health focus, but we understand that you actually have to touch people’s lives to improve their health. When we start young, we know that we will have healthier adults in our community. Start young and build their futures and potential through these scholarships," says Denise Malecki, Corporate Communications Manager.

Through the Step Up For Students initiative, students are given the opportunity to excel in their educational environment by being able to participate in private schools or out-of-district public schools that may be more tailored to their individual learning needs.

A significant long-term benefit of the program is the potential break in cyclical poverty situations and the creation of successful life paths for children in challenged economic circumstances.

The program recognizes the differences in children’s learning styles and aims to give families choices in their child’s education -- an option that many financially stable families may already have.

Since the program’s start, more than 331,000 scholarships have been awarded.

"For 11 years, our program has been helping our state’s most disadvantaged and academically vulnerable children access the schools that best meet their needs. The program exists to promote equal educational opportunity, so all of Florida’s children have a better chance at a successful future. We are grateful to WellCare for heling us make this mission a reality," says Step Up For Students President Doug Tuthill.

Tampa Bay Arts Summit Promotes Regional Collaboration

A first-of-its-kind regional arts summit will take place Oct. 25, 2013 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront, bringing together arts organizations, arts advocates, legislators and administrators from the five counties surrounding Tampa Bay. 

The Regional Arts Summit: Return on Investment aims to promote collaboration between arts organizations of all disciplines to better leverage advertising and marketing dollars, avoid scheduling conflicts and to build and share audiences.  Through interactive presentations and breakout sessions, participants will discuss topics such as cooperative programming, advocacy, regional funding, cultural tourism, and arts in healthcare.

xByte Technologies Adds New Location, Jobs

Sarasota-based xByte Technologies nearly tripled its physical space recently with the purchase of a new 30,000-square-foot facility in south Manatee County.

The company refurbishes and resells IT equipment, specializing in servers, storage components and networking equipment. They relocated to Tampa Bay in 2006, seeking a great living environment for employees.

They currently work mostly with Dell, HP and IBM computers. The new facility will allow them to expand their offerings to include Cisco products as well as expand their server manufacturing lines.

The company participates in the Bradenton Area Economic Development Corporation’s (EDC) jobs incentives program to help identify qualified candidates.  

"The community involvement with organizations like the Bradenton Area EDC has been tremendously helpful for us to get our name out there," says Stephen Jaynes, COO for xByte Technologies, noting that the recognition they receive locally helps them attract good candidates and support their growth.

The expansion will bring about 10 to 20 new positions within the next year, adding to the current employee base of 32. Positions will be sales, administrative and IT technicians.

The company was recently honored in the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Florida Fast 100 privately held companies. "It’s big news for us, something we’re very excited about," says Jaynes. The award reflects revenues, job growth and community involvement.

JOLT Production School Assists Aspiring Filmmakers, Nonprofits

Two Tampa Bay nonprofits will benefit from the work of aspiring filmmakers and other Tampa Bay creatives.  

JOLT Production School completed its inaugural class of 15 students in July. Over the course of three intensive weekends, students spent time with teachers and mentors to learn the ins and outs of the film industry -- from conceptualization to full production.

The students worked in teams of six to develop pro bono public service announcements (PSA’s) for nonprofits in Tampa Bay. The process is very hands on, with the teams working with experienced mentors and visiting film studios to gain first-hand knowledge they might not be exposed to in other academic settings.

The nonprofit production school was founded by film professionals Chanse Chanathalansy and Pete Guzzo. Its mission is to mentor and teach aspiring film professionals while supporting local area nonprofits.

"We’re really trying to raise the production value and standards in the Tampa Bay market, as well as give back to our community," says Mike Compton, producer for JOLT Production School.

In doing so, JOLT hopes to bring more film industry businesses to Tampa Bay as well as produce more local talent that can be hired by large scale productions that film in the region. Currently, many companies are going outside of the area to find talent.

The nonprofits that will benefit from the inaugural class are Instruments of Change and the Tampa Theatre. The PSAs will be launched at a PSA Screening and Fundraiser, August 29, at 5 pm at the Tampa Theatre.

The process was a community partnership, with other creative businesses donating time and support, including PP+K, Greyhouse Films, First Unit Production Services, Red Gear Studios, WEDU, Digital Caviar.

JOLT Productions’ next class will begin in October.

CGHJ Architects Grows, Adds 4+ Jobs In Tampa

For more than 30 years, Curts Gaines Hall Jones Architects, Inc. has built and followed a value system of innovation and trust relationships among staff and clients. The company is now experiencing significant market growth and is adding new architects to its 11-member team.

Between 2007 and 2009, private sector development of multifamily and high-end condominiums began to slip away -- hit hard during the economic climate shift -- significantly swaying the architectural and development community and forcing CGHJ to reduce the size of its staff of 55 team members by nearly 90 percent.

"That market practically disappeared, but that’s a market we see coming back strongly. Things are changing." says Bob Hall, Executive VP of CGHJ.

By Christmas 2012, new projects began to emerge and existing projects began further developments, indicating positive change and the call for additional team members. The firm has more than doubled its staff size in recent months.

"The beginning of 2013 was when the doors started to open. By the end of the first quarter, we started looking at each other realizing that the light of the end of the tunnel was getting brighter and it seemed like it was going to stay lit. All we’ve had since then has been more indication of that," says Hall.

CGHJ attributes much of the market growth to the resurgence and community interest in urban living. Developers and residents alike are moving to pre-recession lifestyle habits, seeking out properties that place them in the heart of the city.

"It’s happening in St. Petersburg very strongly and happening in Tampa more, where people are moving out of the suburbs and close to the city core. That’s a very exciting type of project," says Gerry Curts, President & CEO.

As the firm continues to identify additional market opportunities, staff will be added to accommodate project needs.

"We have a terrific staff of seasoned, experienced architects that are coming back on board. We focus on doing things right, and have a great reputation as a result," says Hall.

PODS Expands, Adds 40 Jobs in Pinellas County

Moving and storage solutions specialists PODS Enterprises, Inc. is growing significantly, creating 40 new high-wage jobs and expanding its corporate headquarters to the Feather Sound Corporate Center in Pinellas County.

The expansion project additionally includes a $2.1 million capital investment, a Qualified Target Industry Tax Refund incentive dedicated to the creation of the new high-wage jobs by 2016.

The continued development initiative of PODS comes at a time of tremendous organizational growth. This year, the company hired 324 new associates and 22 new executives, driving the need to increase the space necessary to house its growing employee base.

"We’ve always been growing. We’re in the process of looking at our organization and the skill sets that we need to continue to help us grow. These 40 positions will help us grow," says Lisa Goettel, senior VP of human resources.

The new corporate headquarters will be housed on the third and fourth floors of the Feather Sound Corporate Center. The company’s existing customer service center at Rio Vista Drive will also undergo renovations to feature expanded training facilities and additional space for future company growth.

"Moving our corporate headquarters into the larger location in Feather Sound also allows us to expand the size of our National Sales and Service center at our current location. We are very excited about our relocation and are happy to be staying in Pinellas County," says President and CEO John Koch.

As PODS sought out suitable sites to accommodate their increasing growth, the company considered such other locations as Georgia to expand, but ultimately selected Pinellas County as the place to be as they further grow.

"We looked at many different locations, but we believe our roots are here. We have so many good employees already working for us, so we just felt that this was the appropriate place to be when we looked at all of the components," says Goettel.
