Want To Get In Touch?

We’ve found that the most effective introduction is from someone who knows you and knows us. Most of the entrepreneurs we’ve met with each year have been via a warm introduction, and referrals will always be vital to our process.

However, when you have a great idea, you shouldn’t need a warm introduction to get a warm reception and real feedback. Tell us about yourself and your idea through bizplans@ballastpointventures.com.

Directions From Tampa International Airport

Tampa International Airport (TPA) is approximately 9 miles west of downtown Tampa. Served by most major air carriers, the airport is consistently rated as one of the finest in the world.

All arrival and departure gates at TPA are located at airside terminals connected to the airport’s central hub by shuttle trams. After you deplane, the shuttle will take you to the central hub where you can board escalators or elevators to the ground floor baggage claim area. Rental car agencies, airport limos and taxis are also located on this level.

To get from TPA to 401 East Jackson Street by car, exit the airport and follow Interstate 275 East toward downtown Tampa.  Take Exit 44 and then fork Left onto N.Tampa Street. In 8 blocks turn Left onto E. Jackson Street and the Sun Trust Financial Centre will be 2 blocks up on your Right.  We are in Suite 2300 of the Sun Trust Financial Centre.

Parking is available in the Sun Trust Financial Centre, with guest spots located just to the right after the gate.  There are also numerous other garages in close proximity.
