After multiple successes over the past several years,.the folks at Tampa’s Tampa Bay Wave accelerator are ready for their next cohort.
In 2011 Tampa Bay Wave saw a $35 million dollar exit for Infinity Box. In 2013, Tampa Bay Wave startup vWorker had an exit for an undisclosed amount and crowdsavings merged. Reports the Tampa Bay Business Journal.
Tampa Bay Wave announced these four companies late last week:

Manager Nicholas E. Price won a pitch contest during Tampa Bay Startup Week and will represent the region at the national competition in Las Vegas later this year
DigySketch, a service by RIDG LLC,records social media ready pieces of conference calls and webcasts. RIDG is headed by Michelle S. Royal, a St. Petersburg designer on the Wave board. One of the employees, Luke Filloramo, is the brother of Wave accelerator manager Jake Filloramo.
Project Done LLC, a St. Petersburg startup behind a cellphone app that will connect users with people bidding to complete house chores. Matthew Spaulding of Project Done was given the Susie Steiner Award during Tampa Bay Startup Week for his efforts in the startup community.
