The business accelerator Gazelle Lab, part of the national Tech Stars network for entrepreneurial startups and an affiliate of the USF St. Petersburg College of Business, is expanding to a second location in the Orlando area. The lab says it will partner with Winter Park-based Rollins College. "We feel this move toward becoming a regional program will strengthen the Gazelle Lab initiative and will guarantee its sustainability," Gazelle Lab founders Daniel James Scott, Marvin Scaff and John Morrow said in a statement. The founders told online news blog TechCrunch that the group hopes to combine Central Florida into a "cohesive early-stage funding scene" while tapping into the talent from area universities like USF, Rollins and others. The lab, which provides startups with up to $18,000 in funding, encourages new businesses to apply for the next 90-day business accelerator programs in St. Petersburg and also in Orlando online at gazellelab.com.
