The Right Stuff takes a provisional holiday; back April 28

Tom Jackson The Right Stuff is, officially, taking a spring holiday (beginning with a whirlwind visit to London, which is why I’ve applied the British variation of “vacation”) through April 27. But that doesn’t mean it absolutely, positively won’t weigh in on occasion if the moment, issue or happenstance presents itself. No matter what, however, all-new episodes of TRS insights episodes are scheduled to resume April 28.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will join a group discussing the growth of technology-based companies and the role of venture capital on Front Row Tampa Bay’s “Entrepreneur Ecosystem” airing Monday, August 27, at 12:15 p.m.

Led by Co-Anchor Kathy Fountain, the roundtable discussion will also feature Garrett Johnson,  co-founder of SendHub; Peter Cherukuri, vice president and general manager of the D.C. bureau for The Huffington Post; and Heather Kenyon, CEO and president of the Tampa Bay Technology Forum.

“In order to develop a more diverse and sustainable economy, we must encourage and invest in the entrepreneurial efforts of local start-up companies,” Bush said in a news release.

The “Entrepreneur Ecosystem” segment will feature successful entrepreneurs in the Tampa region, as well as across the country. The group will also discuss the importance venture capitalists bring to entrepreneurs ready to start their own business.

Front Row Tampa Bay is a live streaming Web TV broadcast airing August 27-30 during the Republican National Convention that will showcase life, business and economic opportunities across the Tampa area. It is an initiative of the Tampa Bay Partnership, a public-private business development group.
