The Susie Steiner Community Impact Award honors a member of the community who makes giving back through entrepreneurship  education a priority. Susie Steiner’s impact was significant to the success of InLab@HCC and continues to inspire students today. The Award named for her recognizes an active partner and volunteer with Hillsborough Community College entrepreneurship programs who has had a positive and ongoing impact with students, faculty, and the very early stage start-up community. The Award was developed to honor Susie’s dedication to helping others as well as for her passion for building the local start up community.

The Susie Steiner Award is given each year at a breakfast attended by entrepreneurs, community funders, friends of Susie, students, faculty and staff of HCC, and other community leaders and guests.  Contact us with questions or if you are interested in sponsoring the event by emailing us or calling 813.253.7114.
