Event Details

Networking event at UF Innovate | Sid Martin Biotech

Calling all entrepreneurs in North Central Florida! Join us in our kick-off to the fall 1980s-themed Innovation Hour, a networking event where neon colors, big hair, and cassette tapes find new life with whatever era vibe you bring to the party. 

This event is open to the public. Please register here by noon on Thursday, August 8.

Innovation Hour is an opportunity for entrepreneurs of North Central Florida to gather, greet, meet, and eat. If you lived through the ’80s or think you understand how it was, retro-fit your look – yuppie, neon, designer clothing, whatever – and enjoy an evening with future-looking entrepreneurial professionals.

The ’80s gave us Star Wars and Indiana Jones, MTV and CNN, and introduced Pac-Man – and the microwave. (It also gave us the Bayh-Dole Act, which ushered in the age of technological revolution – and spawned the startup era.) 

Come to grow your connections and build your network!
