Earlier this month, Tampa Bay Inno recognized 35 local companies in its annual Flame Awards.

We know that sometimes talking tech, numbers, facts, and figures can feel like a total snooze fest, so we’re here to spice things up.

Here are five of our top Tampa Bay-based movers and shakers, heating up the global playing field + setting our region ablaze.

🎟 Satisfi Labs

  • They created the AI chat you use when you need help buying tickets to watch the Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Rays, or Tampa Bay Buccaneers in action.
  • Think: Those 24/7 help chats when you go to a website.

🍴 Omnivore

  • If you’ve ever worked behind a digital cash register — you know there are a ton of buttons you have to click correctly to make a sale. Omnivore streamlines the job by combining the average cash register with digital software.
  • Think: Those touchscreen cash registers that employees flip around for your signature — they seem to be everywhere.

🍞 Base Culture

  • No matter how you slice it, this natural food brand is known for supplying Tampa Bay with paleo, grain-free, and gluten-free frozen baked goods. Products are sold at Whole Foods Market, Sprouts, and Fresh Market.
  • Think: Healthy loaves of bread, different kinds of nut butter, and more.

💉 Morphogenesis

  • This health tech company is focused on creating a skin cancer drug that will help treat patients with advanced melanoma.
  • Think: An injection you’d get at the hospital to help ease symptoms and slow melanoma.

🎥 Vū Technologies Corp.

  • This company is the film industry’s leading virtual film studio network, serving filmmakers, production companies, enterprise brands, and metaverse developers.
  • Think: A colossal-sized curved LED TV that CBS Sports, Neiman Marcus, WWE, and Mercedez-Benz rented out for promos and commercials.

Two new retailers are moving into Water Street Tampa later this fall.
That prediction is due, in large part, to the traffic boom at the Tampa Bay Convention Center.
