Embarc Collective helps Tampa Bay’s startup talent build bold, scalable, thriving companies.
“When it comes to the mix between livability and opportunities, I don’t think you can find a better place than Tampa Bay to call home and grow a company. There’s no place on Earth I’d rather be.”
Elizabeth Ho-Sing-Loy is a Community Associate at Embarc Collective. She graduated from The University of Tampa with a Bachelor of Arts in History and a minor in Art History in 2020. Elizabeth’s love for the Tampa community grew while leading UTampa’s PEACE Volunteer Center and through her participation in a variety of university organizations where she provided dynamic strategy and leadership to the student body and broader Tampa Bay community.
“It’s a city in a renewed adolescence, and its residents have the honor of assuming the role of community builders, with the unique position of being able to individually shape the type of city they want Tampa to become — their city, their friends’ city, their family’s city.”

With a background in workplace relations and hospitality, Ingrid brings over a decade of experience to the Embarc Collective team and its membership.

“I’ve seen firsthand why this community is ready to be a hub of so many new, successful ventures. It all starts with the people — the welcoming, supportive community is essential for any new start-up and Tampa Bay is full of incredible people seeking ways to help others.”
