Our BBA Memebers

"I have been calling on a large company that provides employee benefits in the Tampa Bay area and wasn't making much progress until I invited one of their executives to your Business Alliance event! I instantly received a reply and an invite to lunch to see how 'we could gain traction with working with each other!' So, thank you for putting on this event. I could easily pay off my season tickets for next season with this one event alone! Go Bolts!" - Danny Ruiz, Lightning STM

"Strong, authentic business relationships are integral to the success of companies in the business world. The Bolts Business Alliance provides a great avenue for professionals in the Tampa Bay community to connect, and strengthen community ties around a common interest with the Tampa Bay Lightning. - Moez Limayem, Dean of USF Muma College of Business
