Hello and welcome to the first blog post on my website, St. Petersburg is for Tech. My name is Shaun Amarnani and I am big advocate for Saint Petersburg, Florida, including its great startup/tech scene.
There are a lot of things happening in St. Petersburg’s starup/tech scene that do not get covered by traditional media and other tech websites. As someone who is heavily involved in St. Petersburg, I often educate entrepreneurs, new tech professionals to the market, and business/political leaders about these word-of-mouth happenings in the local startup/tech scene. I have also learned that there are a lot of tech companies in St. Petersburg that are growing rapidly, often struggling to fill high-quality tech jobs with local talent. In many cases, these companies have to recruit outside the Tampa Bay region.
I created St. Petersburg is for Tech to share some of my word-of-mouth information about St. Petersburg’s startup/tech happenings. My hope is that this website will serve as a starting point for local entrepreneurs, tech employees in St. Petersburg, tech employees looking at moving to the market, and anyone else who is interested in following the extraordinary growth of the tech and tech-related sectors in St. Petersburg.
If you have a St. Petersburg tech story that you think should be covered, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to covering many of the St. Petersburg tech happenings in the future. Stay tuned!
