Welcoming the Incoming Class of the Young Professionals Board
Today, we are excited to announce our 2023 – 2024 class of Young Professionals Board members. These individuals have committed to creating a bridge between the established business world and the emerging startups building at Embarc Collective.
The objective of the Young Professionals Board is to create a vibrant network of opportunities for Embarc Collective member companies and leaders in the business community. Since its inception, the board has focused on two key initiatives: helping member companies access helpful tools, resources, and business connections, and profiling the relocation of tech talent to Tampa Bay.
“Mobility Empowered has benefitted tremendously from the strategic support of Embarc Collective’s Young Professionals Board,” said Chris Kline, CEO of Mobility Empowered and Embarc Collective member. “2022-2023 Young Professionals Board Member] Matt Livak of J.P. Morgan Private Bank has championed customer connections on our behalf that we otherwise wouldn’t have access to. For a growing company like ours, those kinds of connections are immensely helpful in enabling us to scale.”
“Since 2021, the Young Professionals Board has played an important role in growing Embarc Collective’s robust corporate connectivity and establishing Embarc Collective as a top-ranked incubation program globally,” said Evan Erickson, Director of Events & Partnerships at Embarc Collective and Leader of the Young Professionals Board. “The members of the 2023-2024 board have been selected based on their dedication to furthering those objectives and helping startups innovate and thrive. We are delighted to bring their insights and enthusiasm to our organization.”
