The RocketLounge is Southwest Florida’s only Incubator & Accelerator for Tech Startups and International Technology Companies.
TRL Campus is much more than a co-working or shared office space. The RocketLounge is a tech startup’s paradise. The programs includes TRL Academy, Florida-specific Vertical Accelerator Programs, a large network of mentors, coaches and co-founders. To build the SWFL’s tech startup ecosystem, we are organizing monthly pitching & networking events where investors and entrepreneurs get together. To get funding for our successful technology companies, we are partnering with a leading Equity Crowdfunding platform as well as with Angel Groups/Funds and VCs from the US and Europe.
The Campus is located in the historic downtown district of Fort Myers, with all specifically designed lifestyle destinations within walking distance to provide an ideal environment for tech startup development. The natural islands of Sanibel and Captiva are 30 Minutes away by boat or by car. This is one of the best places to work, live and innovate with one of the best climates on earth.
The RocketLounge brings innovation and entrepreneurship back to Southwest Florida. Early innovators like Edison, Ford and Firestone already moved to Fort Myers to innovate and started exciting new industries.
Southwest Florida is a perfect spot to start your technology venture or enter the US market with your established European technology company. Florida has lower taxes and cost of living then many of the larger tech spots like California, New York, Boston and Austin. Great universities, a modern international airport, many entrepreneurial mentors, a business friendly government and a highly skilled workforce are all being the essential foundations for a successful technology enterprise to start.
