The University of Tampa’s Lowth Entrepreneurship Center has launched the Startup Studio, a new resource for practicing and aspiring entrepreneurs.

According to a news release, Startup Studio programming will focus on personal growth, skill development and transformation of founders as well as companies. The first session, “Ideation: Exploration and Concept Formation,” is set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 7 and will be facilitated by Alex Bruton, a Canadian educator and entrepreneur.

The next session, “Mindset,” hosted by Rebecca White, a professor of entrepreneurship at the University of Tampa, takes place 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 21. Participants, the release states, will learn skills that foster an entrepreneurial mindset and lead to productive founder habits.

The final session, “Validation: Developing the Opportunity,” is set for 6-9 p.m. Nov. 3 and 17 and features the expertise of Joy Randels, CEO of Tampa-based Prowess Group and New Market Partners in Bradenton. It will help participants better understand the process of determining the need for a product or service through customer and market verification — a critical step toward creating a viable business, but one that often gets skipped.

Each session costs $325 per person, or $125 for students, educators and members of the military. For more information, visit the Startup Studio website, or call 813-257-3702.
