"Companies like SOMA are important to the Tampa Bay startup community and increase its visibility on the international stage and help to attract top talent to the area." - Lakshmi Shenoy, CEO of Embarc Collective.
TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) August 22, 2019
SOMA Global, a leading provider of modern public safety solutions, has announced an expanded presence in the Tampa Bay Area.
Since founding the company in early 2017, SOMA has added over 30 agencies to its Public Safety as a Service (PSAAS™) platform, across 5 states. Over the next year the company is on track to add 30 more agencies and expand to a total of 10 states.
SOMA has chosen the Tampa Bay Area for its headquarters and its new offices in the heart of downtown Tampa. The new space will accommodate up to 35 new hires over the next year, supporting a total of 50 employees worldwide.
“We are proud to call Tampa our home,” said Peter Quintas, Founder and CEO of SOMA Global. “Since moving to the area a decade ago, Tampa Bay has experienced tremendous growth, particularly in technology.”
Tampa is growing tremendously, in part because of the $3bn Water Street Tampa development, led by Strategic Property Partners, a joint venture by Jeff Vinik and Cascade Ventures. To enhance the increasing number of startup opportunities within Water Street Tampa and the region overall, Embarc Collective, a 32,000 square foot startup hub opening in Tampa, helps the region’s startup talent build bold, scalable thriving companies and elevate the profile of the startup opportunities in Tampa Bay.
“I am excited for SOMA’s growth in our business community,” said Lakshmi Shenoy, CEO of Embarc Collective. “Companies like SOMA are important to the Tampa Bay startup community and increase its visibility on the international stage and help to attract top talent to the area.”
Since opening its new HQ earlier this year, SOMA Global has hosted multiple events in the Tampa Bay tech community. To receive info on future events, follow SOMA on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or at https://www.somaglobal.com.
