The donation from AVI-SPL includes two 50-inch displays in the lobby of Tampa Bay WaVE, a projector for presentations, a large 72-inch interactive display, speakers, a podium for large events and video recording equipment, the center said in a statement.

The equipment will be used in the nonprofit’s FirstWaVE Venture Center, where local technology ventures can work on developing their businesses.
