Our Story

What are we about?

In June 2016, Groundswell was founded by three serial entrepreneurs and Space Coast natives, eager to see greater startup activity in the area.

For a little over a year, we brought together technologists, entrepreneurs and innovators at any coffee shop, restaurant or office space that would let us borrow a table.

Today - Groundswell lives in a skatepark-turned-coworking-space, hosting more than 30 events per year and continuing our mission of building a place where Space Coast innovators an build, grow and thrive.
