Britain-Based Strive Sales Establishes Tampa, Florida, International Office

Strive Sales, a UK-based talent hiring agency focused in the software sales industry, established its first international office in Tampa, Florida. The project is expected to create 11 jobs over the next two years.

The company leased space at Industrious in Ybor City which will serve clients throughout the state, alongside continuing to build its portfolio across North America.

“Tampa offers everything we were looking for in a North American headquarters, a robust talent pipeline, an active startup community, low business costs and an excellent quality of life,” said John Hitchen, US Managing Director for Strive Sales. “We’re looking forward to building our team and joining this vibrant community.”

This project was made possible in partnership with Enterprise Florida, Inc. (EFI).

“Demand for tech talent remains at an all-time high in Tampa,” noted Angel Gonzalez, chair of the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council and Regional President of SouthState Bank. “Thanks to our friends at Embarc Collective, Tampa Bay Wave and Florida Funders, we’re seeing significant startup activity and venture capital interest in the Tampa Bay area, which is attracting companies like Strive Sales that work with growing technology companies. We’re thrilled to have another international company choose to launch its U.S. operations from Tampa.”

Founded in 2018, Strive Sales builds go-to market teams for venture capital backed software companies to assist with recruitment and sales.
