John P. Lowth Entrepreneurship Center

The Center is housed in top level of the Innovation and Collaboration Building. The twenty-six foot ceilings, clearstory light, expansive views of Tampa Bay make this an impressive location for education. The fifteen-foot glass curtain wall separates the covered outdoor entertainment deck from the main lobby. It is a collaborative environment with open spaces inspired from companies like Google and Apple. It includes business accelerators, community incubators, a large pitch room with bleacher style seating, a tiered seminar room, a contemplation loft and other creative spaces designed for impromptu conversations and educational collaboration. The graphics throughout the space were developed with the president to inspire young students to believe in themselves.
