TAMPA, Fla.—Last year, Florida Armenians (FLArmenians) launched a statewide professional network with an inaugural event at Malio’s Prime Steakhouse in downtown Tampa Bay. More than 30 young professionals, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and students from various industries and professions attended.
Guests enjoyed complimentary food and beverages to the tune of Armenian and Middle Eastern music all while taking in the view of downtown Tampa Bay. “We’re pleased to see such a diverse group of young and professional Armenians come together and build the personal and business relationships that will carry our community forward,” said Arsine Kaloustian, FLArmenians communications director.
“FLArmenians has ignited a new era among the Tampa Bay Armenians, both in community and business interaction,” said Melik Keuroghlian, FLArmenians Tampa officer. “It’s amazing how this launch has started a ripple that continues in motion.”
The Florida Armenians Professional Network (FLAPN) is currently building a statewide database of professionals and business owners to facilitate opportunities for Florida’s Armenian youth and Armenian-owned businesses. The FLAPN Business Directory will be published in the coming months.
