What is happening this week?


It's time for a small break 

We want you to know...

This has been a challenging year for all of us. So many of you have continued to show up and engage with the city of Dunedin, with the community of entrepreneurs, and with us! We appreciate you every time we sit as a board to plan, each time we listen to your needs and bring in programming to support your growth. We are working hard on plans to continue the work, with a renewed board of directors, with some shifts in roles, and with a new year ahead.

Dr. Michael Broom resigned from the board of directors, anticipating some change in our annual meeting of roles and needs. We are grateful for all the energy and time he has put in to start the foundational work of keeping the Florida Business Incubator moving forward.

As volunteer board members, we have all invested a lot of time and skills to keep ourselves available to the community. With 2021 we have plans to be a stepping stone for new businesses coming to Pinellas County, and Dunedin, with partnerships that focus on business success.  We look forward to seeing you at our next SPARK tank on December 3rd at 9 am. Until then, know we appreciate every one of you and the ways in which you show up for each other and the Florida Business Incubator!

With Gratitude, Evelyn Dufner
on behalf of the Board of Directors

Join us in the Spark Tank and enjoy.

What are SPARK Tanks!? 

For entrepreneurs and small business owners, the Dunedin Entrepreneurs' Spark Tank is a great opportunity to 'brain bounce' new ideas, make vital connections, and meet up with like-minded entrepreneurs,  Free and open to the public, join us to... Innovate, Implement and Intensify Your Business!


We have presenters who cover topics vital to small business owners. These are interactive mini-workshops where you be able to apply the concepts, skills, and ideas to your situation with plenty of time for questions.


Much more than networking, at our Challenges Round participants…

  • Share what their business is
  • Share whatever challenges their business may be facing
  • Receive ideas, brainstorming, and options about your challenges from people who have been there 
  • Offer their ideas and options to support others as you’ve been supported 

After either Spark Tank form, there will be time to chat and swapped business cards with folks that you connected with for further support and discussion.

Come join us! You won’t be disappointed!

Sparks don't run on their own, it takes support from the community, time from our volunteer board, and out of pocket expenses to fuel our media and run this group. If it has served you well, provided you perspective, given you leads, or created a sense of collaborative community, then PLEASE consider donating.
