The Full Story

A Vision for Lakeland

In 2013, leaders in Lakeland had a vision of what our community could become if they came together to support entrepreneurs. From traveling to learn from other cities to donating resources, they chased after this dream until it became a reality.

They have taught us about uncommon innovation, vision casting, and creating community. For this, we will always be grateful!
