Welcome!

FireSpring Fund was established to provide seed-stage capital to high-growth-potential, early-stage technology companies in Florida. In addition, FireSpring Fund provides an advanced Accelerator which provides education, mentorship, peer support, feedback and other learning opportunities to gain customers and market share and to ready companies for venture capital funding.

Places 

Central Florida has a growing number of coworking spaces, private and university-based maker labs, and plenty of gathering places for formal and informal meet-ups. Essentials for a healthy startup community.

FireSpring Fund is currently located in Orlando at Canvs and coming soon to Daytona at Micaplex (John Mica Engineering and Aerospace Innovation Complex) and to Melbourne at Groundswell. Contact us to find out how to expand to your community.  

 

 

 

Programs 

Accelerators, like Starter Studio, that help nurture new ideas—and new entrepreneurs—into real products and viable companies are key to a thriving startup eco-system.

FireSpring Fund is a second stage accelerator that provides seed funding and provides education, mentorship, peer support, feedback and other learning opportunities to gain customers and market share and to ready companies for venture capital funding.

 

 

 

Funding 

Central Florida’s startups face a severe funding gap that could lead to a stifling of innovation. Increasing access to capital for promising, early-stage companies is necessary for a strong and diversified economy.

FireSpring Fund provides $25,000  in seed funding when accepted to the Accelerator. In addition, they may receive up to another $200,000 based on achieving predetermined success metrics.

 

 

 

We need your help. If you are passionate about building a tech community and passionate about creating a diverse economy of high-paying jobs, then join us and make a contribution today.
