Operation Startup

Operation Startup is the veteran entrepreneurship outreach center for the InLab@HCC.  This collaboration between Hillsborough Community College and Hillsborough County provides early stage social entrepreneurs, HCC students, and the military Veteran start-up community "vetrepreneurs" access to mentoring, educational programs, co-working space, an early stage business accelerator, events, and myriad networking opportunities.

It is a great place for our HCC students to go to work on their businesses and tap into additional workshops and resources available through our center. These services help mitigate factors that contribute to business failure, while increasing the likelihood of successful startups.
